Comparison of optimized single and multifield irradiation plans of antiproton, proton and carbon ion beams.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Antiprotons have been suggested as a possibly superior modality for radiotherapy, due to the energy released when antiprotons annihilate, which enhances the Bragg peak and introduces a high-LET component to the dose. However, concerns are expressed about the inferior lateral dose distribution caused by the annihilation products… (More)
