The assessment of left ventricular function, wall motion and myocardial viability using electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated [(18)F]-FDG positron emission tomography (PET) is widely accepted in human and in preclinical small animal studies. The nonterminal and noninvasive approach permits repeated in vivo evaluations of the same animal, facilitating the assessment(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was the commissioning of delivery procedures for the treatment of moving targets in scanning pencil beam hadrontherapy. METHODS EBT3 films fixed to the Anzai Respiratory Phantom were exposed to carbon ion scanned homogeneous fields (E=332MeV/u). To evaluate the interplay effect, field size and flatness for 3 different(More)
INTRODUCTION Pencil beam scanning technique used at CNAO requires beam characteristics to be carefully assessed and periodically checked to guarantee patient safety. This study aimed at characterizing the Lynx® detector (IBA Dosimetry) for commissioning and periodic quality assurance (QA) for proton and carbon ion beams, as compared to EBT3 films, currently(More)
