Proton Beam Configuration

CHF 69.00

Proton Beam Therapy, an advanced cancer treatment using proton radiation, requires precise planning to target tumors while sparing healthy tissues. This book offers essential knowledge on treatment planning concepts, focusing on optimal beam configurations and covering target volume definitions, planning objectives, dose constraints, and oncological management concisely through visuals, tables, and graphs. The content is based on scientific research, meta-analyses, literature reviews, and the author’s clinical experience. Aimed at proton treatment planning professionals, students, and researchers, this resource streamlines the process of configuring proton beams for various tumor sites, saving time in a demanding clinical setting. Published online in September 2023, it includes recent research data.



Proton Beam Therapy is an advanced technology that is used to treat cancer patients with proton radiation. Proton radiation treatment planning is a complex procedure that is carried out to target precisely the tumour volume with proton radiation doses that are conformal to the shape of the target while sparing normal tissues. In order to create accurate, precise and effective proton beam radiation plans, knowledge of various aspects of treatment planning concepts is required. This is where this book comes into use. The aim of this book is to provide information primarily about various beam configurations that can be applied to produce optimal proton radiation plans. Secondly this book provides abundant information about other aspects of treatment planning including Target volume definitions, planning objectives, dose constraints, dose prescriptions and oncological management of cancers in a concise manner without going into too much detail. Most of the data is produced in a pictorial, tabular and graphical format rather than in prose so that desired information can be found quickly in the book.

The data and information presented in this book is derived from previous and current studies including scientific research papers, meta-analysis, literature reviews and from the clinical experience of the author. This book meets the unmet need of proton treatment planners for user’s quick resource for treatment planning knowledge. This book is intended for proton treatment planning physicists, dosimetrists, radiation oncologists, medical physics and radiography students and proton beam therapy researchers. In a highly hectic and demanding clinical environment, this book can help professionals and students to learn and apply beam configurations without spending lot of time trying to figure out possible and optimal beam arrangements for a tumour site. This book intends to save time of planners by providing up to date knowledge and information in a concise manner. This is first volume and it encompasses not only established knowledge but also recent research data. First Published Online in digital format in Sept 2023.
