This publication is the result of a collaborative exercise between IAEA and ICRU regarding standardization of dose reporting procedures for the clinical use of particle beams. It contains contributions on ion therapy topics including beam production, dosimetry, relative biological effectiveness, treatment planning, clinical requirements and current protocols, patient selection for ion treatment, and quantities for treatment reporting. These topics provide the necessary information to develop the best possible set of recommendations for harmonizing the reporting of ion beam therapy internationally.
