Re-scanning in scanned ion beam therapy in the presence of organ motion

Dirk Müssig
Therapeutic dose application by highly tumor-conformal scanned ion beam radiation therapy is currently in most cases not possible for indications which exhibit tumor motion. Due to interference effects, the dose application is likely to be distorted so that treatment is not safely possible. Distorted dose profiles can be improved by means of statistical averaging - the corresponding technique is known as re-scanning and was investigated in this work. Carbon ion treatment planning studies for five...
