The University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center in Ohio, US, is to set up a $30m proton therapy centre.

Proton therapy is an advanced type of radiation treatment that uses a powerful beam of protons to target treatment and match it to the shape of each tumour.

There are only nine proton therapy centres in the US, and the one at Seidman Cancer Center will be the first in Ohio.

Mitch Machtay, chairman of radiation oncology and University Hospitals Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, said that the proton therapy centre will enable the facility to offer a full array of cutting-edge radiotherapy.

The initiative is expected to be complete in 2014.
