Purpose: To evaluate the influence of bone cement in the path of proton beam on its range and on dose distribution. Methods and materials: Two computed tomography (CT) data sets were obtained with and without a bone cement disk placed in a water phantom. Treatment planning was performed on a set[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
