Irradiation methods and nozzle design for the advanced proton therapy facility

    Corresponding author: SHU Hang,

Abstract: 

A conception design of the Advanced Proton Therapy Facility (APTF) has been carried out. The system intentionally employs a slow-cycling synchrotron with a maximum energy of 250 MeV, two rotating gantries and two fixed beam nozzles for the treatment. In this paper, we try to compare the strength and weaknesses between the two treatment methods: the beam spreading and the pencil beam scanning. The application of the pencil beam scanning method and the double-scattering method together with the related nozzle design at APTF is also given. The simulation results of employing the double-scattering method have been given during the preliminary design.
