  1. 6. Biological effects of high energy radiation and ultra high dose rates

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Björn Zackrisson; Umeå universitet.; [1991]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiobiology; 50 MV x-rays; 50 MeV electrons; in vitro; in vivo; RBE; OER; ultra high dose-rate; radiobiological models; model selection; models of stochastic processes;

    Abstract : Recently a powerful electron accelerator, 50 MeV race-track microtron, has been taken into clinical use. This gives the opportunity to treat patients with higher x-ray and electron energies than before. Furthermore, treatments can be performed were the entire fractional dose can be delivered in parts of a second. READ MORE

  2. 7. Micro/nanometric Scale Study of Energy Deposition and its Impact on the Biological Response for Ionizing Radiation Brachytherapy radionuclides, proton and carbon ion beams

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fernanda Villegas Navarro; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ionizing radiation; Monte Carlo track structure code; Microdosimetric spread; Energy deposition clustering; RBE; Medicinsk radiofysik; Medical Radiophysics;

    Abstract : Research in radiotherapy for cancer treatment focuses on finding methods that can improve the compromise between tumour cell inactivation versus damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. As new radiation modalities such as proton therapy become accessible for everyday clinical practice, a better understanding of the variation in biological response of the tumour and healthy tissues would improve treatment planning to achieve optimal outcome.
