229 views

In the fight against cancer, proton radiation offers a far more targeted and gentle alternative to X-rays, which can cause significant damage to healthy cells and lose intensity on their way through the body.Engineer Yves Jongen greatly advanced proton therapy for cancer and made it available to a much larger number of people. To reduce the cost and boost the use of proton therapy, he pioneered the construction of a compact and efficient version of the proton-generating device called the ‘cyclotron', which was designed for clinical and therapeutic use.
