MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center Two

Houston, Texas

The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center offers the most advanced radiation available.

Proton therapy is an advanced type of radiation treatment that uses a beam of protons to deliver radiation directly to the tumor, destroying cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. Protons enter the body with a low radiation dose, stop at the tumor, match its shape and volume or depth, and deposit the bulk of their cancer-fighting energy precisely at the tumor.

This therapy is currently used to treat a number of cancers in adult and pediatric patients including: prostate, lung, head and neck, liver, esophagus, brain and lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system.

A unique aspect of this project for Dynamic Systems, Inc. was installing ductwork and piping systems embedded in concrete. The uniqueness of this install happened in gradual concrete pours starting underground and going up to the second floor.
