Abstract

Particle irradiation of cancerous disease has gained great traction in recent years. The ability for particle therapy centers to deliver radiation with a highly conformal dose distribution while maintaining minimal exit or excess dose delivered to normal tissue, coupled with various biological advantages particularly found with heavy-ion beams, enables treatment of diseases inapproachable with conventional radiotherapy. Here, we present a review of the current status of particle therapy with regard to cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, including esophagus, liver, pancreas, and recurrent rectal cancer.
