One of the most important aims of each treatment planning system is the ability of delivering a target conformal dose distribution. Developed and successful used within the heavy ion therapy pilot project, the TReatment plannIng for Particles ( TRiP) is characterised by the capability of delivering exact results in relatively short time, making it possible to rapidly verify and, if necessary, recalculate the therapy plans. Scattering The scattering of charged particles, travelling with velocities corresponding to energies above the Coulomb barrier potential, consists mainly of two processes: multiple scattering and scattering as a result of fragmentation. The elastic scattering of the slow stopping ions remains small in comparison with the two processes describe
