The PAMELA project to design an accelerator for
hadron therapy using non-scaling Fixed Field Alternating
Gradient (NS-FFAG) magnets requires a transport line
and gantry to take the beam to the patient. The NS-FFAG
principle offers the possibility of a gantry much smaller,
lighter and cheaper than conventional designs, with the
added ability to accept a wide range of fast changing
energies. This paper will build on previous work to
investigate a transport line which could be used for the
PAMELA project. The design is presented along with a
study and optimisation of its acceptance.
