    1. Status and main challenges for detectors in Hadron TherapyEuropean Radiation Detection and Imaging (ERDIT) Bernd VossGSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH

    2. Guideline What is Hadron Therapy about? What are the methods & instruments offering particles for treatment during the evolution ‘State-of-the-art’  ‘Modern’  ‘Futuristic’ accelerators? Which tasks do we have to perform and which questionsdo we have to answer in radio therapy (RT)? Which requirements & challenges for detector systems result? Are there already practical solutions? ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN

    3. Hadron-Therapy Light Ions vs. Photons IMRT 12C Jäkel et al, Med Phys 35 2008 • Ions… • Show inverse depth-dose profiles with a finite range and low lateral scattering at least in the plateau region • Allow superior tumor-dose conformality • Introduce increased sensibility to range uncertainties (wrong dosage)daily positioning for 30 days, intra- & inter-fractional target movement Schardt et al, Rev Med Phys 82 2010 Fragment tail ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN

    4. Hadron-Therapy Knowledge of base data is crucial • Depth-dose/range distributions Nuclear fragmentation cross-sections • Conversion of CT planning data (Hounsfield Units) into range of ions Existing detector equipment for the base-data collection is mature Relative ionization Rietzel et al, Rad Onc 2,14 2007 Depth in water (mm) HU: Water equivalent path length CT number ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN

    5. ‘State-of-the-art’ Hadron Therapy facilities Beam preparation Heidelberg Ion Therapy: Beam application ‘Standard’ Accelerator structures Cyclotron, Synchrotron, Synchro-cyclotron Beam transport Mature detector equipment pick up, SEM, SCI, rest-gas monitors, IC, CG, MWPC Under investigation: GEM-TPC, Diamond, Si Basic research & Quality assurance ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN

    6. ‘State-of-the-art’ beam delivery Minor Challenges • On-line monitoring of irradiation exhibits… • Local saturation spoiling width determination for wire based gaseous systems in high-flux areas esp. for point-like (pencil) beams with high LET radiation (12C-RT) • Potential solution Exploit robust amplification methods e.g. based on GEM technology First prototypes show feasibility ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN

    7. ‘Modern’ Accelerators LASER driven accelerator E≥1012V/cm Relativistic e- ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN • LASER 1PW250TW, Ti-Saphire, Neodynium-Glass, O(100m2) space req. • Pulse 25700fs, 25/w10/s conventional p-cyclotron: 100MHz • Dose Rate (2 Gy/(min l)) ~10-3Gy/pulse ~10-10 Gy/pulse • Spot point like O(10µm2), O(1021W cm-2) • Proton energy 10170MeV with exponential energy spectra (factor 2 still missing) • Targets thin foils (50nm-10µm Si,Ti,Hydro-Carbon), H2droplets Limited mass to increase proton energy at given power at decreased divergence and to obtain (quasi) mono-chromatic beams!

    8. ‘Futuristic’ Accelerators Dielectric Wall Accelerator • CT-guided rotational (200°) IMPT • Pulsed HF fields, p(200MeV) in 2m • (E,I,spot) variable pulse-to-pulse • Pulse length O(ns)@50Hz • On-line monitoring beam-application? Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN Y. -J. Chen et al. LLNL-CONF-414222, 2009

    9. ‘Modern’ beam delivery Major Challenges • DWA & PRIOR (???) still in a very early stage or just sketched • LASER based systems are set up; open questions: • Shielding the patient against beam contaminations (hard-X,e-,n) • Formation of irradiation-field from non-monochromatic beams • Dosimetry for exponential energy spectrum recently solved by conventional IC calibrated against FC • Measurements for (x,y,z) steering and control for ultra-fast (ns) irradiation techniques; how to do an intensity modulation & dose control particle therapy?

    10. Intermediate Summary …ongoing detector R&D Besides ongoing attempts to optimize equipment for online monitoring of beam delivery & control (MWPC) existing detector equipment for base-data collection and state-of-the-art ion-beam application is mature R&D endeavors concentrate on: methods to reduce range uncertainties (anatomy, patient positioning, inter- and intra fractional motion of target volume) attempting to obtain 3D in-vivo on-line dosimetry & tomography using available information emerging from the target volume developing dedicated imaging detector systems ERDIT for Horizon2020, CERN
