  1. 1. Interlaced proton grid therapy: development of an innovative radiation treatment technique

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Thomas Henry; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proton therapy; grid therapy; spatially fractionated therapy; interlacing; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Spatially fractionated radiotherapy, also known as grid therapy (GRID), has been used for more than a century to try to treat several kinds of lesions. Yet, the grid technique remains a relatively unknown and uncommon treatment modality nowadays. READ MORE

  3. 3. Implementation of MRI gel dosimetry in radiation therapy

    University dissertation from Department of Radiation Physics, Lund university

    Author : Sven Bäck; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; Cytology; uncertainty; detector; dosimeter; ferrous ions; gel dosimetry; magnetic resonance imaging; monomers; polymerisation; proton; treatment planning verification; radiation therapy; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Gel-dosmätningar för kontroll av strålbehandling av cancertumörer När en patient strålbehandlas avser man att bestråla sjuka områden i kroppen. Det är dock omöjligt att göra detta utan att därmed även till viss del stråla på omkringliggande organ och komplikationer kan då uppstå. READ MORE

  4. 4. Radiation therapy of upper gastrointestinal cancers with scanned proton beams A treatment planning study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Gracinda Mondlane; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Treatment planning; gastric cancer; liver metastases; photon beam therapy; proton beam therapy; dosimetric comparison; normal tissue complication probability; risk of radiation-induced secondary cancer; patient selection; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Proton beam therapy (PBT), using scanned beams, is an emerging modality used for the treatment of cancer. The clinical advantages of PBT, compared to commonly used photon beam therapy, have been demonstrated in different studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Beam Modelling for Treatment Planning of Scanned Proton Beams

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Kimstrand; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Radiation sciences; proton therapy; treatment planning; beam modelling; dose calculation; Monte Carlo; Strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Scanned proton beams offer the possibility to take full advantage of the dose deposition properties of proton beams, i.e. the limited range and sharp peak at the end of the range, the Bragg peak. READ MORE
