Optimized beam optics for scanned proton beams in a gantry

Y. Jongen & G. Saive
Purpose: To present the beam optics methodology to reach the requirement needed in terms of beam characteristics at isocenter for a fast and efficient pencil beam scanning. Method and results: In proton therapy, the delivery of the proton beam to the patient by scanning pencil beams imposes new and[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
