About Emory Proton Therapy Center

Opened in December 2018, Emory Proton Therapy Center has treated over 3000 patients. The center is a free-standing outpatient cancer care center located adjacent to Winship at Emory Midtown, a thriving hub of multidisciplinary care centrally located in Atlanta. Emory faculty and staff provide all clinical services at the center, with 16 radiation oncology physician faculty treating patients at the center alongside 10 proton medical physicists and 4 advanced practice providers. As the only proton therapy center in the state of Georgia, the center is a regional resource, and a significant component of our patient care involves collaboration with community and regional physicians to partner in care of their most complex and challenging cases. The center uses Varian’s ProBeam system with five clinical rooms (4 fully-rotational gantries and 1 fixed beam room), with all rooms equipped with pencil beam scanning and cone-beam CT in all gantry rooms. The center has a dual energy CT simulator and a 1.5 T MRI used for treatment planning and diagnostic imaging. Additional assets for patient care include SDX for motion management, sedation and anesthesia services, a procedure suite for fiducials and hydrogel placement, and point of care labs. Patients are supported by a dedicated dietician, child life specialist, social work services, and a patient-experience team. In addition to a robust clinical practice, the center features as a significant component of our physician resident and medical physicist resident training, with an active research program including many cooperative group and investigator-initiated clinical trials open at the proton center.
