Treatment planning in proton therapy

Today I’ll be lecturing at CNAO on treatment planning in proton therapy and I take this as an opportunity to start sharing here some material related to medical physics.

Last year I was invited to write a paper on proton treatment planning for a special issue of The European Physical Journal Plus.  Here is a version I can share. Layout aside, is nearly identical to the published paper. The approach is not too technical, so if you are interested in learning how a proton radiation therapy treatment is designed don’t be afraid and give it a try.
