  1. 1. Improved dose response modeling for normal tissue damage and therapy optimization

    Author : Magdalena Adamus-Górka; Bengt K. Lind; Anders Brahme; Panayiotis Mavroidis; Randall K. Ten Haken; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : Normal tissue complications; radiobiological models; dose-response; volume effect; spinal cord; effective FSU size; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : The present thesis is focused on the development and application of dose response models for radiation therapy. Radiobiological models of tissue response to radiation are an integral part of the radiotherapeutic process and a powerful tool to optimize tumor control and minimize damage to healthy tissues for use in clinical trials.

    Abstract : The increased interest in the use of light ion therapy is due to the high dose conformity to the target and the dense energy deposition along the tracks resulting in increased relative biological effectiveness compared to conventional radiation therapy. In spite of the good clinical experience, fundamental research on the characteristics of the ion beams is still needed in order to be able to fully explore their use. READ MORE
