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
7. Micro/nanometric Scale Study of Energy Deposition and its Impact on the Biological Response for Ionizing Radiation Brachytherapy radionuclides, proton and carbon ion beamsUniversity dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
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.
