Title: How Does Proton Radiation Therapy Work?

Abstract

A cancer diagnosis can be a devastating thing to hear, but new treatments are greatly improving a person’s chance of being cured. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln explains the physics of an exciting treatment option, called proton radiation therapy, which is far superior to traditional therapy, at least in some cases.
