A proton accelerator in the new proton therapeutic complex in the Central Military Hospital in Ružomberok was ceremonially put into service on Tuesday, April 6, the SITA newswire wrote. The complex is a joint Slovak-Russian project.
The proton accelerator in Ružomberok is the first facility serving for deep cancer therapy in central Europe. “Cure by proton laser in oncology is more sparing, effective, and has fewer side effects than other methods. It is a third generation device, which will be available for all patients,” said Igor Combor, the hospital’s director.
