Title Superconducting gantry design for proton tomography
Contributors
Abstract Precise proton therapy planning can be assisted by aug- menting conventional medical imaging techniques with pro- ton computed tomography (pCT). For adults this requires an incident proton energy up to around 330 MeV, requir- ing superconducting magnets if an imaging gantry is to re- place a conventional 230-250 MeV gantry in the same space. Here we present optics considerations for a superconducting gantry to deliver 330 MeV protons within the context of the future Christie Hospital proton therapy centre, where it is proposed to increase the initial 250 MeV proton energy in the future with a 3 GHz 54 MV/m booster linac.
