At The Proton Therapy Center, Czech (PTC) we are passionate about improving the lives of all people. We are passionate about curing cancer and improving the quality of our patient's lives.
The PTC is an advanced clinical center with the newest and highest standard technology for treatment of patients with cancer, which opened in 2012. As you know, being actively used since 1992, proton therapy significantly improves and extends treatment of tumours near vital structures with minimal damage to healthy tissue and risk of secondary complications. Therefore proton therapy is one of the therapy methods used for malignant tumours offering the best prospects in the 21st century. At the PTC in Prague we believe the experts who assume that amongst the available curative therapies, proton therapy will continue to have a stronger and stronger position.
Currently in a two-shift operation, in future we will treat up to 2,200 patients a year. We have 4 treatment rooms (3 gantries and 1 with a fixed beam) and a full range of diagnostic equipment such as CT (computed tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and a PET/CT camera (examination combining computed tomography and positron emission tomography).All treatment is prepared to comply with the strictest international standards and to ensure the highest quality of treatment is provided to patients from the Czech Republic as well as from abroad. Foreign patients are given full service and care; the center can organise accommodation as well as regular transport to the city center. We are ready to use online communication channels to stay in touch with the specialists on the patient’s side and to keep them up to date about his or her state of health and treatment process.
The Proton Therapy Center employs specialists within their fields and can guarantee a highly professional and pro-client approach. We cooperate closely with leading Czech Universities and other educational institutions supporting science and research and we aim to contribute to the development of radiation oncology and other oncological specialisations. Although the center is set to become the world’s top center, our goal is not to hold onto this position but to share our experience to enable the building of new centers so that the largest number of patients can access this therapy.
On behalf of Proton Therapy Center Czech I would like to thank the organisational committee of PTCOG for the honour to organise the conference in Prague in May 2016. Proton therapy is no magic, it´s pure physics, but we are convinced that Prague will show you it´s magical side. Looking forward to welcome you here as well in our center.
