Imaging in Radiotherapy / Parodi, Katia
With the continued evolution of modern radiation therapy towards high precision delivery of high therapeutic doses to the tumour while optimally sparing surrounding healthy tissue, imaging becomes a crucial component to identify the intended target, properly position it at the treatment site and, in more advanced research applications, visualize the treatment delivery. This contribution reviews the main role of imaging in modern external beam radiation therapy, with special emphasis on emerging ion beam therapy techniques, which aim at exploiting the favourable properties of ion interaction in matter for unprecedented ballistic accuracy in dose delivery

Future (of) Synchrotrons for Particle Therapy / Flanz, Jay
The field of particle therapy is quickly growing and yet it's more widespread adoption is limited by size, cost and adaptation to the more conformal treatment techniques. In order to realize the benefits of this modality the equipment used to generate and deliver the beam is evolving. [...]

Radiobiological Characterization of Clinical Proton and Carbon-Ion Beams / Scalliet, Pierre ; Gueulette, John
Electromagnetic radiation (photons) or particle beam (protons or heavy ions) have similar biological effects, i.e. damage to human cell DNA that eventually leads to cell death if not correctly repaired. [...]

Medical Physics Commissioning / Meer, David (PSI, Villigen)
The medical commissioning is an important step to bring a particle gantry into clinical operation for tumour treatments. This involves the parametrization and characterization of all relevant systems including the beam delivery, the patient table, the imaging systems and the connection to all required software components.
