 In this work, three-dimensional (3D) film-based proton beam measurements were used for the first time to verify the patientspecific radiation dose distribution, beam range and compensator shape. Three passively scattered proton beams and one uniform scanning proton beam were directed onto an acrylic phantom with inserted Gafchromic EBT films. The average gamma index for a comparison of the dose distributions was less than one for 97.2 % of all pixels from the passively scattered proton beams and 98.1 % of all pixels for the uniform scanning proton beams, with a 3 % dose and a 3 mm distance-to-dose agreement tolerance limit. The results also showed that the average percentage of points within the acceptance criteria for proton beam ranges was 94.6 % for the passively scattered proton beams. Both the dose distribution and the proton beam range determined by the 3D EBT film measurement agreed well with the planning system values.
