As proton therapy treatment centers become smaller and more cost-effective, education and training for today’s multi-disciplinary oncology teams are more important than ever before. This state-of-the-art reference brings you fully up to date with all aspects of proton therapy, with guidance you can trust from MD Anderson Cancer Center, the largest and most experienced proton therapy center in the world. Led by Drs. Steven J. Frank and W. Ronald Zhu, Proton Therapy provides a unique opportunity to benefit from the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of an esteemed team of leaders in the field. Covers all cancers for which proton therapy is used most often, including prostate, head and neck, pediatrics, central nervous system, gastrointestinal, sarcomas, lungs, breast, lymphomas, and gynecologic cancers. Provides up-to-date information on radiobiology, treatment planning and quality assurance, indications for proton therapy, management approaches, and outcomes after proton therapy by disease site. Discusses technologic advances such as spot scanning and treatment planning systems for the management of solid tumors; radiobiology of proton therapy, including DNA damage and repair mechanisms and acute and late effects on normal tissues; and multifield optimized intensity-modulated proton therapy (MFO-IMPT) for optimizing the distribution of linear energy transfer (LET) of proton beams within target volumes and away from critical normal structures. Includes a special section on head and neck cases in the e-book that photographically illustrates the full cycle of proton therapy care.

The book is divided into two parts: Part I deals with the relevant physics and planning algorithms of protons (H Breuer) and Part II with the radiobiology, radiopathology and clinical outcomes of proton therapy and a comparison of proton therapy versus photon therapy (BJ Smit). Protons can be used for radiosurgery and general radio therapy. Since proton therapy was first proposed in 1946 by Wilson, about sixteen facilities have been built globally. Only a very few of these have isocentric beam

Matthias Würl presents two essential steps to implement offline PET monitoring of proton dose delivery at a clinical facility, namely the setting up of an accurate Monte Carlo model of the clinical beamline and the experimental validation of positron emitter production cross-sections. In the first part, the field size dependence of the dose output is described for scanned proton beams. Both the Monte Carlo and an analytical computational beam model were able to accurately predict target dose, while the

Proton beam therapy is a controversial form of radiation that is revolutionizing cancer care. Some critics feel it needs more proof, even though 200,000 people have been treated worldwide over the past thirty years. As a cancer patient, Robert Ferré wanted to know if proton therapy would be the best treatment. The answer is a resounding yes. Now three years cancer free, he is on a mission to inform the public about this exceptional cancer treatment.Compared to surgery, x-rays, and

Proton beam therapy is an emerging technology with promise of revolutionizing the treatment of cancer. While nearly half of all patients diagnosed with cancer in the US receive radiation therapy, the majority is delivered via electron accelerators, where photons are used to irradiate cancerous tissue. Because of the physical properties of photon beams, photons may deposit energy along their entire path length through the body. On the other hand, a proton beam directed at a tumor travels in a straight

When it comes to prostate cancer, men (and the women who love them) must do their own research to discover the best treatment. Too many jump directly into surgery without knowing their range of options. Author Robert Ferré has been down that road (PSA of 16.0, seven of twelve cores 40-100% malignant, Gleason score of 4+3=7). After extensive inquiry, he chose proton therapy for his treatment. The daily fifteen-minute treatment killed the cancer while causing a minimum of side effects. Now three
