[Source: The Arizona Republic] - Mayo Clinic today unveiled plans to build a new $182 million radiation therapy center in Phoenix that will provide advanced treatment to children and adults with complicated cancer cases.
The Mayo Clinic's proton-beam therapy program will include new 100,000-square-foot facilities that will open in late 2014 or 2015 in Phoenix and Rochester, Minn.
Advocates of proton-beam therapy say it provides more targeted radiation to tumors, lessening the damage to healthy tissue when compared with conventional X-ray radiation treatment.
