Zeitschrift Für Medizinische Physik 28, no. 4 (December 1, 2018): 310–17.

Conclusion
The proposed combination of the Lynx® + Sphinx® systems appear to be suitable as a device for daily QA of proton range for PBS proton therapy, even under extreme, and very unlikely, set-up and beam delivery uncertainties.

Conclusion
The use of novel QA devices such as the Sphinx in conjunction with the Lynx, PPC05 ion chamber, HexaCheck/MIMI phantoms, and myQA software was shown to provide a comprehensive and efficient method for performing daily QA of a number of system parameters for a modern proton PBS‐dedicated treatment delivery unit.
