The path from clinical requirements to technical implementation is filtered by the translation of the modality to the technology. An important part of that filter is that the modality be safe. For that to be the case it is imperative to understand what clinical parameters affect the safety of a treatment, and then determine how the technology can affect those parameters.
This book provides a practical introduction to particle therapy. It provides a thorough introduction to the tools, their applications, and then details the components that are needed to implement it. It explains the foundations of beam production and beam delivery which serve to meet the necessary clinical requirements. It emphasizes the relationship between requirements and implementation including how safety and quality is considered and implemented in the solution. The reader will learn to better understand what parameters are important to achieve these goals It will be a useful resource for physicists in the field of particle therapy in addition to biomedical engineers and practitioners in the field of accelerator physics. It can also be used as a textbook for graduate medical physics and accelerator physics courses.
- Presents a practical and accessible journey from application requirements to technical solutions
- Provides a pedagogic treatment of the underlying technology
- Describes how safety is to be considered in the application of this technology and how safety and quality can be factored into the overall system.
