SAH Global  Proton Therapy Cancer Centers ensure that patients from across the world can have access to the best treatments available. We work tirelessly with local physicians and a global network of leading healthcare providers to bring excellent quality cancer care to our patients.
Healthcare professionals are invited to meet our Proton Therapy experts on the SAH Global booth during Arab Health, from January 29th to February 1st, Sheikh Saeed Hall 3 S3.C70.
The SAH Team will explain how we currently treat with Proton Therapy.
Professionals can come to SAH booth to discuss cancer cases, have a peer-to-peer review and figure out how Proton Therapy can improve survival chances and quality of life for patients.
SAH will also hold specialized Hands-on-Training sessions :
Module 1 : Clinical indications for Proton Therapy – General 
Module 2 : Clinical benefits of Proton Therapy for Children
Module 3 : Clinical benefits for Brain, Head and Neck, Central Nervous System cancers
Module 4 : Clinical benefits for Re-treatment and Complex cases
Module 5 : Treatment planning: Protons vs photons
Module 6 : Optimizing Patient Outcomes and Workflow Optimization
Module 7 : Bio-Markers and Early Cancer Detection 
Healthcare Professionals are invited to join the SAH Network and to become part of a network of experts that are committed to bringing the latest in cancer treatment options to their patients.

Proton beam therapy (PBT) in children and young adults with nonhematologic malignancies of the head and neck appeared to be safe and delivered local control rates similar to those seen historically.

Proton beam therapy (PBT) may be a better treatment option for pediatric patients with head and neck cancers than first-line therapy with traditional photon radiation, according to a new study published by Pediatric Blood and Cancer. The authors found that PBT results in similar outcomes with less of a detrimental impact on quality of life.
“These data show proton therapy is not only effective, it is also more tolerable for patients,” Dr Hill-Kayser said. “This study shows this treatment is safe and offers practice guidelines for delivering head and neck proton therapy in the pediatric population.”

A single mother from Sydney reveals how ‘Facebook saved her life’ after cancer. In November 2016 she was told she had a rare brain cancer and would die. She found out about proton therapy on social media and went to America for it. The therapy was successful, she has a 95 percent chance of surviving 15 years. The therapy could be available in Sydney as soon as 2020, campaigners say.

CERN is the world’s largest particle physics research laboratory. Since it was established in 1954, it has made an outstanding contribution to our understanding of the fundamental particles and their interactions, and also to the technologies needed to analyse their properties and behaviour. The experimental challenges have pushed the performance of particle accelerators and detectors to the limits of our technical capabilities, and these groundbreaking technologies can also have a significant impact in applications beyond particle physics. In particular, the detectors developed for particle physics have led to improved techniques for medical imaging, while accelerator technologies lie at the heart of the irradiation methods that are widely used for treating cancer.

Indeed, many important diagnostic and therapeutic techniques used by healthcare professionals are based either on basic physics principles or the technologies developed to carry out physics research. Ever since the discovery of x-rays by Roentgen in 1895, physics has been instrumental in the development of technologies in the biomedical domain, including the use of ionizing radiation for medical imaging and therapy. Some key examples that are explored in detail in this book include scanners based on positron emission tomography, as well as radiation therapy for cancer treatment. Even the collaborative model of particle physics is proving to be effective in catalysing multidisciplinary research for medical applications, ensuring that pioneering physics research is exploited for the benefit of all.

Cancer therapy is a multi-modality approach including surgery, systemic or targeted chemotherapy, radiation (external beam or radionuclide), and immunotherapy. Radiation is typically administered using external beam photon therapy. Proton therapy has been around for more than 60 years but was restricted to research laboratories until the 1990s. Since then clinical proton therapy has been growing rapidly with currently more than 50 facilities worldwide. The interest in proton therapy stems from the physical properties of protons allowing for advanced dose sculpting around the target and sparing of healthy tissue. This review first evaluates the basics of proton therapy physics and technology and then outlines some of the current physical, biological, and clinical challenges. Solving these will ultimately determine whether proton therapy will continue on its path to becoming mainstream.
