Systems and methods for tuning a charged particle accelerator (

40

) are described. An accelerator tuning system (

44

) includes a graphical user interface (

110

) that guides a tuning technician (

42

) through an accelerator tuning process and interfaces with a measurement instrument (

46

) configured to measure characteristic parameters of the accelerator (

40

). The graphical user interface (

110

) enables the technician (

42

) to make parameter measurements and interpret the results of those measurements more quickly and easily. A computer (

50

) may be programmed to generate the graphical user interface (

110

), and instructions (

51

) for generating the graphical user interface (

110

) may be carried on a computer-readable medium. An accelerator tuning method includes the steps of guiding a user through an accelerator tuning process and interfacing with a measurement instrument (

46

) configured to measure characteristic parameters of the accelerator (

40

).
