Particle Therapy using Proton and Ion Beams - From Basic Principles to Daily Operations and Future Concepts(3/3)

by Andreas Peter (Head of Accelerator Operations, Heidelberg Ion Beam Theraps Centre (HIT), Germany)

Thursday, 13 September 2012 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 222-R-001 - Filtration Plant )
Description
Part III:
• Daily operations of a particle therapy centre: Experiences from the first five years at HIT in Heidelberg, from commissioning to the treatment of the first 1000 patients so far
• Future enhancements for synchrotron-driven particle therapy facilities: Magnetic field control and feedback, dynamic spill shaping and multi-energy operation within one synchrotron cycle
• Outlook to new accelerator concepts proposed for particle therapy: FFAGs, laser plasma accelerators, dielectric wall accelerators and others
