Mayo Clinic’s Approach to Proton Beam Radiation Therapy


Proton beam therapy is a very rare form of highly targeted radiation therapy. The Mayo Clinic Proton Beam Therapy Program uses the latest form of proton beam therapy — pencil beam scanning. This advance allows Mayo radiation oncologists to deliver higher doses of radiation to cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. Mayo Clinic currently offers proton beam therapy in Arizona and Minnesota. Mayo Clinic’s Jacksonville, Florida campus announced plans to build an integrated oncology facility including proton beam therapy expected to be completed late 2023.
