This report analyses the existing scientific literature, guidelines and recommendations for identifying the knowledge gaps related to medical physics and clinical issues of proton therapy. Current literature does not allow for sufficiently robust "cost/effectiveness" comparison of PT with other treatment options for a large variety of diagnoses. We highlight some of the most promising areas where current research indicates that such a justification might exist and where further research could solidify these assumptions.
