Many believe that proton imaging technology will enable new/future capabilities in such areas as image guidance, adaptive treatment planning, precise respiratory gating compensation (including motion control and beam gating), and decision support.
Future Key Benefits of Proton Radiography:
- Pre-Treatment Target Acquisition System
- 3-D Volumetric Imaging @ 1/10th the dose of kV X-ray
- Reduces uncertainty/errors in range calculations
- Utilizes therapy beam line for both imaging & treatment
- Proton Tomography
- Adaptive Planning/Delivery
