Numerical Simulations to Evaluate and Compare the Performances of Existing and Novel Degrader Materials for Proton Therapy

28 Apr 2018 Tesse Robin Dubus Alain Pauly Nicolas Hernalsteens Cédric Kleeven Willem Stichelbaut Frederic

The performance of the energy degrader in terms of beam properties directly impacts the design and cost of cyclotron-based proton therapy centers. The aim of this study is to evaluate the performances of different existing and novel degrader materials... (read more)
