Abstract

Beam commissioning of the new proton therapy system for University of Tsukuba was started in September 2000. The present system employs a synchrotron with a maximum energy of 250MeV and two rotating gantries. The beam was successfully accelerated up to 250MeV and transported to the irradiation nozzles. The position of the beam extracted from the synchrotron was confirmed to be very stable and sufficient flatness for the irradiation area was realized by using the dual ring double scattering method developed at University of Tsukuba. Furthermore, synchrotron operation triggered by patient respiration signal was succeeded.
