Bronowice Cyclotron Center

 Built by the PAS Institute of Nuclear Physics in Kraków, the Bronowice Cyclotron Center is Poland’s only facility equipped to treat cancer with beams of accelerated protons. Proton therapy is the latest type of radiotherapy, and its effectiveness for certain types of cancer is estimated to be at above 90%. It differs from traditional methods in that the protons strike and destroy cancer cells with great precision, without damaging healthy tissues.
