Range Verification Methods in Particle Therapy: Underlying Physics and Monte Carlo Modeling

  title={Range Verification Methods in Particle Therapy: Underlying Physics and Monte Carlo Modeling},
  author={Aafke Christine Kraan},
  booktitle={Front. Oncol.},
Hadron therapy allows for highly conformal dose distributions and better sparing of organs-at-risk, thanks to the characteristic dose deposition as function of depth. However, the quality of hadron therapy treatments is closely connected with the ability to predict and achieve a given beam range in the patient. Currently, uncertainties in particle range lead to the employment of safety margins, at the expense of treatment quality. Much research in particle therapy is therefore aimed at… CONTINUE READING
