The latest equipment. MPTC’s facility, which began treating patients in February 2016, offers the next generation in proton therapy, called pencil-beam scanning or intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT), in all five treatment rooms. This means that patients get the most precise treatment available. Learn more about proton therapy.
Save Time for What Matters Most. MPTC is the first center in the U.S. to use the Qfix Symphony Patient Transport System, a transport system which allows the patient to be setup on the device before bringing them into the treatment room. This means that time in the room is saved for what matters most – treating patients. The patient transport system allows us to help more people get the treatment they need and get back to their lives. Using this system, MPTC has been able to treat more than 100 patients daily.
Unique treatment planning technique. Before treatment begins, patients receive comprehensive treatment planning and assessment using advanced imaging techniques including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Before each treatment, patients can be checked using a volumetric CT scan in the treatment room, a feature unique to MPTC that further increases each treatment’s precision.
Access to clinical trials. Physicians at MPTC are a renowned team, part of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, who conduct clinical trials and lead research efforts on proton therapy. Patients at MPTC have access to a variety of MPTC-led and multi-institutional clinical trials. Find out which trials are going on now.
Concierge services. MPTC’s concierge team provides a range of services free of charge to patients and their families. From free valet parking to help coordinating appointments, arranging lodging, securing transportation, or adding that special detail to make you feel comfortable, our team takes care of the logistics, so you can focus on treatment.

Cost-neutral rate. Unlike some of the nation’s other proton treatment centers, MPTC has established a cost-neutral rate for treatment between protons and photons. This reduces barriers to access, and keeps the focus where it belongs: on getting the best possible treatment. Contact us to find out more.
A patient-centered approach: MPTC has a clinical social worker and a clinical nutritionist available to help all patients through their journey.
