Due to the pronounced dose gradients generated by proton beams, proton treatment plans can be very sensitive to treatment uncertainties. However in IMPT many different solutions of the inverse problem exist which result in dose distributions of comparable quality. This thesis investigates methods to exploit this degeneracy of solutions to generate treatment plans which are robust to uncertainties. To rate the sensitivity to uncertainties of individual beamlet dose distributions the heterogeneity number H was developed. It was shown that H correlates with the dose calculation error introduced by the commonly employed pencil beam algorithm as well as with the sensitivity to setup errors of…
