Radiotherapy is one of the main treatment modalities available to treat cancer. Radiotherapy treatment plans are created based on CT scans of the patient. In such scans the macroscopic tumor is visible, but microscopic disease present in the surrounding tissue cannot be observed. To achieve an optimal clinical outcome, both the macroscopic and...

In proton therapy, robust treatment planning is currently used to account for uncertainties in patient alignment and proton beam range. A way to overcome the limitations of robust treatment planning is to use probabilistic treatment planning, which can be computationally expensive due to the calculations of statistical measures of stochastic...

Radiotherapy is an important treatment type for patients with cancer. An advantage of state of the art proton therapy with respect to traditional photon therapy is the spatial energy deposition of protons, which is characterized by the Bragg peak. Due to this particular course of energy deposition, the tumor can be irradiated more precisely and...
