The most advanced technique: Proton Therapy
Proton therapy is a highly precise form of radiation therapy that uses beams of protons. It therefore limits side effects and therefore makes it possible to treat tumors in children and adults located near very sensitive organs. Initially developed for eye tumors and intracranial tumors, proton therapy is experiencing strong development around the world with an expansion of the indications, particularly in pediatrics due to the reduced risk of sequelae. Pediatric tumors, Eye and brain tumors. Sarcoma, head and neck.
Today, conventional radiotherapy uses beams of photons and / or electrons. Proton therapy consists of a beam of protons - elementary particles carrying a positive charge. It is the energy deposited by these particles that destroys tumor cells.
Particle accelerators in conventional radiotherapy devices generate an electron beam. These charged particles are either directly used to treat the patient, or directed towards a target which will create a beam of photons which is then directed towards the patient.
Electrons are usually used for superficial irradiations, a few centimeters deep. Their physical properties allow them to deposit their energy deeper. The photon beams deliver a homogeneous dose deeper. However, this energy deposit is not strictly localized. There is a small lateral dispersion along the path, related to the penumbra of the beam, and a strong dispersion before and after the “maximum of the dose deposit”.
Even though classical radiotherapy has seen significant and numerous improvements, in particular due to the development of conformational radiotherapy, it does not achieve the ballistic precision of proton beams. There is only one reason for this: the specific physical properties of these particles.
What are the benefits for the patient ?
First advantage: protons will pass through matter to deposit almost all of their energy at a given depth, then stop dead. The initial energy of the protons determines the depth reached.
Second advantage: the protons are disperses little along this trajectory. As a result, regions adjacent to the beams suffer very little collateral damage. The specific and localized energy deposition of protons also offers the possibility of increasing the dose received by the tumor without excessively increasing that deposited in neighboring healthy tissues. With proton therapy, radiotherapists have ultra-precise ballistic radiation, which is very useful when it comes to treating tumors near sensitive organs, especially in children.
