Standardised treatment

In order to treat children suffering from cancer in the best possible way, treatment is generally carried out within the framework of international study protocols. This enables radiation oncologists all over the world to learn as much as possible from the (very rare) cases of paediatric or childhood cancers. These protocols are based on knowledge gained in past radiation treatments. They aim to help improve the therapies and the chance of cure for children. 

This procedure contains specific provisions on the type of treatment best suited to your child at a given moment.  It is possible that your child will be registered with us here at CPT half a year before the start of proton therapy, so that your child can be treated with other therapies first.
