Abstract

© 2019, © 2019 Acta Oncologica Foundation. Summary: This feasibility study shows that Spot-scanning Proton Arc therapy (SPArc) is able to significantly reduce the dose to the hippocampus and cochlea compared to both Volumetric Modulated Arc Photon Therapy (VMAT) and the robust optimized Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (ro-IMPT) plans in whole brain radiotherapy. Furthermore, SPArc not only improves plan robustness but could potentially deliver a treatment as efficient as ro-IMPT when proton system’s energy layer switch time is less than 1 s.
