The previous chapter dealt with aspects of proton beam therapy which are more or less independent of the patient. That is, it discussed matters that do not depend on the patient’s geometry nor on the treatment planning aims. This chapter addresses the more clinical side of the problem; how one tailors proton beams to the patient, and how one plans a treatment using protons.
