UT Southwestern Medical Center, seeking to broaden an already robust array of radiation oncology treatments it offers to patients, potentially could play a key role in operating a state-of-the-art proton therapy center for North Texas being planned and funded by San Diego-based Advanced Particle Therapy (APT).

The plan, announced today, is subject to the approval of the UT System Board of Regents. Under the terms of a letter of intent, the proposed 100,000-square-foot center would be operated by UT Southwestern physicians and staff, but built and developed by APT. It would be the second such facility in the state and would feature at least four treatment vaults, as well as laboratory space for researchers.
