One of the potential advantages of charged particle therapy is the reduction in the risk of radiation-induced malignancies compared with x-ray tele-therapy. Several studies, using the standard radioprotection model, have shown that the risk is reduced by a factor of 2-15 depending on the anatomical [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
