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.

 Proton Beam Therapy Center, University of Tsukuba Hospital, also provides consultations for patients from overseas. If you would like to receive treatment at Proton Beam Therapy Center, please refer to the page of "Conditions for Acceptance".
