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.

Facilities

The RPTC has been designed to provide radiotherapy for tumors in any part of the body. Comprehensive technical facilities allow the RPTC to deliver all services associated with radiation at the Center, including diagnostics, tumor targeting, preparation of the radiotherapy protocol and tumor staging, and follow-up examinations if required. The RPTC is the first large proton therapy center in Europe to offer a complete hospital setting and comprehensive therapeutic options.
 
In addition, with the clinical start-up of the RPTC on March 16, 2009 the Dr. Rinecker Surgical Clinic affiliated with the RPTC has been admitted for radiation therapy to the hospital plan of the State of Bavaria. This makes it the first clinic in Germany that is also state-licensed for proton radiation treatment of patients with statutory health insurance.

Overview of the technical facilities at the Center:

  • Two multidetector spiral whole-body CT scanners, one in combination with a positron emission tomograph (PET-CT).

  • Two 1.5 tesla whole-body MRI systems.

  • Equipment for angiography, sonography, endoscopy, and laboratory investigations into interference from screening and cytostatic agents.

  • Anesthesia facilities with monitors and a recovery room (for children and radiotherapy treatment for lung cancer).

  • Large workstation/server cluster for therapy planning and individual medical definition of radiation dosages/protocols. Therapy planning can also be carried out remotely using data networks with CT and MRI support.

  • Four gantries (radiation targeting units) equipped with patient couches. These units have sufficient freedom to irradiate tumors anywhere in the body, including those inside the skull (brain tumors) from any direction.

  • A fixed-beam system for dedicated precision irradiation of tumors involving the eye, brain and face is being developed.
