Analysis of a Novel Toroidal Configuration for Hadron Therapy Gantries

Felcini Enrico

GaToroid is a novel concept of toroidal gantry for hadron therapy. The operating principle of this configuration allows the delivery of clinical radiation doses from a discrete number of angles avoiding magnets as well as patient rotation. Large acceptance, fixed configuration and superconducting magnets offer an interesting reduction of size, weight and cost of the gantry and related infrastructures, creating an attractive alternative to the state of the art.
