Influence of density variations on the proton range in therapy of ocular tumors

J. Heufelder, A. Weber, D. Cordini & R. Stark
Background: Dose calculations for the proton therapy of ocular tumors are generally based on an eye model with a constant density. The calculations are thus reduced primarily to a simple geometrical range tracking algorithm, looking for the maximum range in a homogeneous eye model. As the clinical results[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
