Intensity modulated proton arc therapy via geometry-based energy selection for ependymoma

CONCLUSIONS: The proposed method demonstrated potential as an efficient technique for IMPAT planning and may offer a dosimetric benefit for patients with ependymoma or tumors in close proximity to critical organs. IMPAT plans created using this method had elevated RBE enhancement associated with increased linear energy transfer (LET) in both targets and abutting critical organs.PMID:36913484 | DOI:10.1002/acm2.13954
