The protons travel through the beam line, guided by electromagnets, into one of four treatment rooms.
Backroom operations are monitored from the control room.
Your simulation process may include CT PET imaging to help pinpoint the location, size and shape of your tumor.
In addition to proton therapy, UF Health Proton Therapy Institute can provide conventional X-ray therapy to treat cancer.
Customized molds and other devices that help position you during treatment are made on-site in our machine shop.
Through a process called electrolysis, protons are taken from water and injected into the cyclotron (cylindrical structure at center), which accelerates protons to nearly the speed of light. The protons are guided through the beam line at right.
