    Abstract
    Despite growing rapidly, proton therapy is still a relatively immature treatment modality, at least in comparison to conventional radiotherapy using photons. As such, in this article, the author gives a very personal view of some of the potential areas for development in medical physics for proton therapy in the next 10 yr by identifying six topics for detailed discussion. The first of these are all related to reducing various "parameters" of proton therapy treatments (size and cost, treatment times, penumbras, and margins), while the second group are related to providing more quantitative "knowledge" about the quality of the treatments we are delivering. In conclusion, there is much interesting and important work still to be done in many areas of medical physics related to proton therapy, of which, the topics selected here are just the tip of the iceberg.

    - 입자방사선치료분야에서 향후 10년동안 관심을 갖을 만한 분야를 36가지 정도 망라했다. 이는 기존 x-선 치료도 당분간 사라지지는 않을 것이므로 입자선 뿐만 아니라 기존 방사선치료분야에도 해당되는 내용이라 여겨진다. 방사선치료분야에서 앞으로 연구주제를 정할 때 이 논문을 참고하면 될 듯…
