Background: The Rinecker Proton Therapy Center (RPTC) opened for patient treatment on March 16th 2009. Since then patients are treated regularly.

Material and methods: At RPTC all patients are treated with 3D scanning.

Results: Several tumour sites have been treated. Case reports are given.

Conclusion: 3D scanning at RPTC delivered in all cases excellent dose distributions with high conformality, high level of healthy tissue sparing and therefore low complication rate.
