"The Most High-Tech Cancer Treatment on the Planet"

November 30, 2009


The impending opening of the Roberts Proton Therapy Center was covered in several segments on WHYY Radio, including on Radio Times, where the center was heralded as "the most high-tech and expensive cancer treatment on the planet." "It's a tool that we think will give less side effects and allow us to give more dose to patients, which would result in more cures," says Stephen Hahn, MD, chairman of the department of Radiation Oncology. "Now, we have to prove that with clinical trials, and that's what we're going to do." The station's website also includes photos of the new center. Listen to segments
