High-tech patient care with a multidisciplinary approach to treatment of cancer is the hallmark of the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center. The center offers patients:
We treat the following cancers: prostate, lung, breast, colo-rectal, gynecologic (ovarian, cervical, vulvar, endometrial, etc.), hepatobilliary (liver, pancreas, etc.), head and neck.
The proton beam was tuned by a team of physicists and engineers led by IBA’s founder and chief research officer, Yves Jongen. The beam reached target specifications for beam size and shape at isocenter (where the patient will be treated).
The Willis-Knighton Cancer Center is hosting a proton therapy physics workshop in Shreveport on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22 and 23, featuring local, national and international speakers. More than 70 physicists, dosimetrists and others interested in radiation physics will participate.
