    ..Our technique is simple to implement, robust in nature and also provides insight allowing parameters that must be contrived in that model to be related directly to physical aspects of the beam delivery system...

    ..Integration of these dose kernels from 0 to 40 mm radius shows that the charge deficit in the Bragg peak chamber varies <2% from entrance to the end of range for energies <180 MeV, but exceeds 5% at 225 MeV. ..
