Before your doctor at Rinecker Proton Center determines a treatment option, you will undergo PET/CT or MRI screening to measure size and location of your tumor. The diagnostic equipment takes about 360 images which then help the team to detect the area of further radiation accurate to a tenth of a millimeter.
Where appropriate, Tumor Board of Rinecker Proton Therapy Center (Munich, Germany) consisting of various specialists including ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, and other experts, discusses complicated cases to have the final word. Some conditions require a combination of proton therapy and surgery or chemotherapy.
Once your treatment plan is set, it will usually require from 4 to 35 fractions (with 1 fraction per day) depending on location and size of your tumor. When the treatment is over, your doctor will schedule a follow-up visit to track your recovery.
