Density scaling of the proton beam spectrum for analytic reconstruction of the SOBP

A. Guemnie Tafo
Background: Proton therapy treatments allow for a better sparing of normal tissues and tumor coverage, mainly due to the Bragg peak dose deposition effect. The selection of the Spread Out Bragg Peak (SOBP) necessary for the treatment is performed using the distal and proximal edges of the tumor and [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
