Susanna Conchin

Hello, my name is Susanna and I am a proton therapy patient myself! After treatment, I have decided to share my own experience in the hope to help others. That is what led me to become a treatment coordinator at the PTC.

Petra Roy

Hello, my name is Petra and I am a treatment coordinator at the PTC. I have always had a passion for the medical field and enjoy meeting new people. Being a treatment coordinator at the PTC allows me to combine the two. 

Proton Therapy Center Prague 

Technical equipment of the PTC in Prague

The PTC has four treatment rooms (capacity 2500 patients per year) and is equipped with the cyclotron manufactured by IBA. We use the pencil beam scanning technique, which is the most precise form of proton therapy. Our centre is also equipped with a complex diagnostic examination system (MRI, PET / CT, CT, etc.) so that our patients can carry out all necessary diagnostic examinations and proton therapy treatments under one roof.

Additional notes

  • All treatments and examinations are usually performed on an outpatient basis
  • Hospitalization for children is required and provided by our partner University Hospital in Motol
  • Metal/ceramic parts in the body may be a contraindication for proton therapy
  • Pacemaker is a contraindication for proton therapy
