This paper investigates, via magnetic modeling and Monte Carlo simulation, the ability to deliver proton beams to the treatment zone inside a split-bore MRI-guided proton therapy system.
PURPOSE: The pursuit of real-time image guided radiotherapy using optimal tissue
contrast has seen the development of several hybrid magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI)-treatment systems, high field and low field, and ...
