“’If the cost was not a barrier, most patients would choose proton therapy for localized tumors,’ explained Kenon Qamar, MD. ‘Until very recently, most hospitals were not able to offer the treatment because the equipment required a massive space and financial commitment. Now, with the advancement in proton therapy technology, the systems are much smaller and much less costly to build and operate.
