Estimating the effects on the dose distribution through the Bragg Peak degradation of lung tissue in proton therapy of thoracic tumors

Particle therapy offers to be a promising therapeutic option for tumors in the lung like Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the irradiation of NSCLCs with protons or carbon ions poses different challenges. The movement of the tumor, the heart and the entire thorax through breathing and the...
