Title
(EN) METHOD FOR TREATING A TARGET VOLUME WITH A PARTICLE BEAM AND DEVICE IMPLEMENTING SAME
(FR) PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT D'UN VOLUME CIBLE PAR UN FAISCEAU DE PARTICULES ET DISPOSITIF APPLIQUANT CE PROCEDE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a method for treating a target volume with a particle beam, in particular a proton beam, which consists in generating said particle beam using an accelerator and in producing from said beam a narrow spot directed towards the target volume, characterised in that said spot sweeping speed and the particle beam intensity are simultaneously varied.
(FR)
La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé de traitement d'un volume cible par un faisceau de particules, en particulier des protons, dans lequel on produit ce faisceau de particules à l'aide d'un accélérateur et on réalise à partir de ce faisceau un spot étroit dirigé vers le volume cible, caractérisé en ce que l'on fait varier simultanément la vitesse de balayage dudit spot et l'intensité du faisceau de particules.
