Descripción
Proton therapy (PT) is a type of external radiotherapy using proton beams with energies between 50 and 230 MeV with relevant clinical advantages in some cancer treatments. Current trends in medical proton therapy centers (PTC) are to build small and standard facilities along with the renovation of former multiple room centers (MPTC). Compact Proton Therapy Centers (CPTC) are usually equipped with one treatment room being standardized and incorporating latest technical advances with the goal of reducing footprints [1]. There is a large production of stray radiation in the interaction of protons with elements of facility. At present, almost 50 CPTC are under construction in several countries hence the study of operational radioprotection is a prevailing task. PT is coming to Spain with two compact centers in the final tests [2]. The aim of this work was to carry out the comparative analysis, by means of the MCNP6 code, of the neutron fields produced by the two types of proton accelerators most commonly used in CPTC, synchrotrons and synchrocyclotrons, in order to use the results obtained in the design and calculation of shielding and the development of operational radiation protection programs of these facilities.
