Argonne National Laboratory and RadiaBeam have designed the Advanced Compact Carbon Ion Linac (ACCIL) for the acceleration of carbon an proton beams up to the energies of 450 MeV/u, required for image-guided hadron therapy. Recently, this project has been enhanced with the capability of fast tumour tracking and treatment through the 4D spot scanning technique. Such solution offers a promising approach to simultaneously reduce the cost and improve the quality of the treatment. In this paper, we report the design of an accelerating structure, capable of operating up to 1000 pulses per second. The linac utilizes an RF pulse compressor for use with commercially available klystrons, which will dramatically reduce the price of the system.
