PHYSICS AGAINST CANCER
Excerpts from the forewords
"As nicely explained in this book, the Paul Scherrer Institute pioneered modern proton therapy and has become a world leader. Generations of radiation oncologists were inspired by the brilliant and curious minds working together at PSI, and exposure to proton therapy there propelled their skills in highly specialised cancer treatments. This unique environment will hopefully continue to engage future generations of radiation oncologists in finding better ways of treating cancer through innovative technology."
By Daniel Zwahlen, Head and Chairman of the Department for Radiation Oncology at the Cantonal Hospital Winterthur, President of the Swiss Society of Radiation Oncology
"At a time when there was only one main type of proton therapy cyclotron, PSI staff played a major role in developing a superconducting cyclotron and opened the door for proton therapy facilities to grow.
This is more than simply interesting. It is vital for posterity to capture the mindset and learn about the people who contributed to so much growth in the field. Who they are and what they did can serve as motivation for young professionals to emulate and seasoned practitioners to admire. For a field to grow and for the community of patients to be best served, it's necessary to learn, grow, improve, and share the way it has been done at PSI. This book provides a look at that extremely important perspective. I, for one, read it with great pleasure."
By Jay Flanz, Project Director and Technical Director of the Burr Proton Therapy Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Past Chairman of the Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group
