LIONESS Light Ions

important in the treatment of childhood cancer patients

The Clinical Benefits of Proton Light Ions Cancer Therapy:
Precise targeting unique to charged particles
Radio-surgical precision
Reproducible treatments
Fewer acute and chronic side effects
Increased dosage possible
Reduced normal tissue damage
Decreased risk of radiation-induced tumors (important to pediatric oncology)

Light ions therapy is the most precise form of radiation treatment available. Light ions radiate primarily the tumor site, leaving surrounding healthy tissue and organs intact and unharmed.

Non-invasive and painless. Particle therapy allows maintaining quality of life thanks to minimal side effects.

Highly effective treatment for tumors in the head, brain, neck, lung, and prostate.

Proton therapy is often used in conjunction with other cancer treatment modalities.

Proton is the radiation therapy of choice for pediatric cancers.
