About us

The RINECKER PROTON THERAPY CENTER

The RPTC, located in Munich, is the first fully certified European proton radiation center which provides a complete hospital setting for the treatment of cancer tumors.

Our innovative therapeutic procedure involves the use of high-energy proton beams for the treatment of cancer. A key characteristic of these proton beams is that protons facilitate the three-dimensional targeting of tumours; this capability is not available with the x-rays used in conventional radiation therapy. Therefore, highly effective dosages can be delivered to the tumour while the side effects of radiation are reduced by minimizing any trauma to the surrounding healthy tissue.

Proton Scanning - The Most Modern Form of Radiotherapy

The RPTC in Munich has the world’s first system specifically designed and optimized for scanning at all four fully movable therapy stations (gantries). This is why the RPTC irradiates more patients using the optimal scanning method than any other institution worldwide.
 
Worldwide, all proton facilities currently planned or under construction will also use scanning technology.  
 
Using the scanning method, the beam scans the tumor in a grid-like fashion with the utmost precision, with up to 10,000 target points in the tumor. The beam’s depth of penetration is controlled using variable beam energy. This is the only method that strictly confines the therapy dose, and thus the maximum dose, to the tumor. More information and a case study can be found here.
