For Patients Who Are Considering Proton Therapy Proton Beam Therapy Center University of Tsukuba Hospital

University of Tsukuba began full-scale clinical research in proton therapy in 1983, as the first facility in Japan to pursue research in the field. The university has achieved a number of significant developments in the field, in particular internationally pioneering the use of proton therapy to treat cancerous liver tumors and other tumors deep inside the body by developing the treatment method known as respiratory-gated radiotherapy, which is now highly regarded and considered as a worldwide standard in proton therapy.
The Proton Therapy Center, University of Tsukuba Hospital, also provides consultations for patients from overseas. If you would like to receive treatment at the Proton Therapy Center, please send us an inquiry using the online form available at the page “For patients who wish to receive treatment.”
