(0.5 CE Credit) TAKE THE QUIZ! We welcome Dr. Lane Rosen from the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center in Shreveport, Louisianna. Dr. Rosen provides an energetic and informative overview of proton therapy ... including the history and development of proton therapy for cancer treatment, current procedures and evolving treatment options, and a look at research which is driving the increased use of proton therapy. I want to thank IBA for the introduction to Dr. Rosen and for giving us a view at this often mis-understood type of radiation therapy.
