Pencil beam scanning treatments in free-breathing lung cancer patients–is 5 mm motion a limit?

Jakobi, A.; Perrin, R.; Knopf, A.; Richter, C.


To evaluate the dose degradation when treating lung cancer patie nts with proton pencil beam scanning during free-breathing. We assess if treatments without rescanning are feasible in order to avoid prolonged treatment time, especially for slow scanning facilities.
