Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy that can target tumor tissues more precisely in certain situations. In contrast to conventional X-ray (or photon) therapy, proton beams have the unique property of stopping at a certain depth in tissue. This property can be put to use and controlled for the treatment of cancer patients.

Proton therapy is the latest addition to the wide array of comprehensive radiotherapy services that are available to patients at RWJUH and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
