Paving the Road for Modern Particle Therapy - What Can We Learn from the Experience Gained with Fast Neutron Therapy in Munich?

While neutron therapy was a highly topical subject in the 70s and 80s, today there are only a few remaining facilities offering fast neutron therapy (FNT). Nevertheless, up to today more than 30,000 patients were treated with neutron therapy.
