TK: There is significant international interest in proton therapy. New centers are being considered or built in Canada, the U.K., Middle East, China, India and many other countries. The opportunity to save and improve lives around the world is certainly significant and other countries want this option for their citizens.

NAPT operates as efficiently as possible using a mix of staff and other management resources. There is growth happening in the industry and for NAPT, so we’ll continually assess the needs of the members and make resource decisions to meet those needs.
HCB News: We always end with asking what your predictions are. So what do you predict the field of proton therapy will look like by 2027?

Proton therapy will continue to expand across the U.S. and the world. Institutions involved with cancer treatment recognize its significant benefits and are choosing to obtain the technology for their patients. Access to the therapy will continue to improve as the technology advances, improving the treatment and reducing the cost and other resource requirements. The number of lives saved and patients spared the difficulties of radiation side effects will expand as the clinical evidence builds and calls for coverage increase to the point where they can’t be denied.Back to HCB News
