Unique treatment planning technique. Before treatment begins, patients receive comprehensive treatment planning and assessment using advanced imaging techniques including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Before each treatment, patients can be checked using a volumetric CT scan in the treatment room, a feature unique to MPTC that further increases each treatment’s precision.
Access to clinical trials. Patients at MPTC have access to a variety of MPTC-led and multi-institutional clinical trials. Find out which trials are going on now.
Cost-neutral rate. Unlike some of the nation’s other proton treatment centers, MPTC has established a cost-neutral rate for treatment between protons and photons. This reduces barriers to access, and keeps the focus where it belongs: on getting the best possible treatment. Contact us to find out more.
A patient-centered approach: Each patient is assigned a primary nurse who assists them throughout their treatment. This unique approach ensures consistent coordination of care. MPTC also has a clinical nutritionist available to help all patients through their journey.
