Practical Radiobiology for Proton Therapy Planning covers the principles, advantages and potential pitfalls that occur in proton therapy, especially its radiobiological modelling applications. This book is intended to educate, inform and to stimulate further research questions. Additionally, it will help proton therapy centres when designing new treatments or when unintended errors or delays occur. The clear descriptions of useful equations for high LET particle beam applications, worked examples of many important clinical situations, and discussion of how proton therapy may be optimized are all important features of the text. This important book blends the relevant physics, biology and medical aspects of this multidisciplinary subject.

Preface

1. Particle physics for biological interactions

2. The essential radiobiology background


3. Some important medical and surgical considerations, including clinical trials


4. Treatment planning and further medical perspectives


5. Historical development of radiotherapy including what was learned from fast neutrons


6. Fractionation


7. The case for using a variable proton RBE


8. A general RBE simple efficiency model for protons and light ions


9.  Inclusion of the energy-efficiency LET and RBE model in proton therapy


10. Compensating for elapsed time: unintended treatment interruptions & re-treatments


11. Errors of Bragg Peak Positioning and their radiobiological correction

12. Additional considerations and conclusions
