Full Description

Abstract:
Robert R. Wilson, a professor of physics at Harvard and designer of
Harvard's cyclotron, first proposed using protons for the treatment of
cancer in 1946. The first patient was treated with protons at the Berkeley
Radiation Laboratory in 1954. Since then, more than 55,000 patients have
been treated with proton therapy, worldwide. We will discuss some of the
most notable developments in proton therapy technology, its clinical
applications, and the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute.
