These photos and illustraions are from the most recent ediions (2018) of my two proton therapy books. For information about the books themselves, summaries, and descriptions, click on the photos of the book covers on the home page, or go to this link: Books.

The chapter structure is slightly different between the two books, so I have organized the illustrations according to subject, combining the material from both of the books. These photos are low resolution so they will open readily. In the books, they are high resolution, with more detail.

The equipment: cyclotrons, beam lines, gantries

The technology: Atoms, Bragg's Peak, scattering and scanning

History: From nuclear destruction to healing technology

My experience: scans, tattoos, laster cross hairs, leg cradles

Comparison with X-Rays

Future considerations: smaller, less expensive, better known and accepted
