1 Heavy Ion Cancer Therapy
The Heidelberg Ion Therapy Facility (HIT) H. Eickhoff GSI, Darmstadt, Germany

2 HIT Layout: Requirements
Low LET (proton, helium) and high LET (carbon and oxygen) treatment Ion penetration depth of 20 – 300 mm => Ion energy range of 50 – 430 MeV/u Rasterscan method => FWHM of beam: 4 – 10 mm in both planes => Beam intensity: 1·106 – 4·1010 ions/spill => Extraction time: 1 – 10 s Treatment of 1000 patients per year in hospital environment with about 15 fractions each => total of irradiations per year => three treatment areas One isocentric gantry

3 Treatment Technique: Rasterscan
Intensity-controlled Rasterscan-method

4 Schedule 1997 First patient treatment at GSI
1998 HICAT Conceptual design report 2000 Technical design report May Approval by Scientific Council of Germany April Final Approval by Supervisory board of Heidelberg University Hospital Autumn 2003 Start of construction End of 2005 Start assembly of accelerator systems Year 2006/7 Commissioning End First patient treatment in Heidelberg Mid of 2008 Hand-over to clinics operation

5 HIT Layout: System Plan
Accelerator sections Two ECR sources Injector linac Synchrotron Extraction via RF knock out Two horizontal areas One Gantry One quality assurance place Compact design (area restrictions)

6 GSI- and HIT-facility (comparison of size)
The HIT facility comparison of the size of the facilities The GSI-accelerator facility

7 HIT Layout: Injector System
Features Based on GSI experience compact reliable Low operation costs Fast switching of ions IH - model Ion source

8 HIT Layout: Synchrotron
Features Compact (diameter 20m) Conventional, approved technique Multiturn injection Multiple beam extraction (‘transverse KO’-method) Range of factor 16 for magnetic rigidity (factor 6 for extraction)

9 HIT Layout: Gantry Features First heavy ion gantry
Close to 600 to. weight 13 m diameter Maximum deformation of 0.5 mm Integration of rasterscan

10 Organisation: Responsibilities
Heidelberg University Hospital (owner) TÜV Mannheim Operation permission Medical items Project Management Building Office, Heidelberg GSI, Darmstadt Certification Accelerator Building/Civil Engineering Treatment Technique Industry Components Subsystems DKFZ, Heidelberg FZR, Rossendorf
