Some of the far reaching contributions of Henry S. Kaplan are described which helped launch the development, improvement, and widespread use of microwave electron linear accelerators in radiotherapy.… (More)
Abstract A brief comparison is made of the design and performance of early and modern isocentric microwave linear accelerators for radiotherapy. Generally accepted criteria for the design of current… (More)
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To apply an imaging capability for high contrast diagnosis into the same radiation field boundary used for performing a treatment by housing an X-ray source in a treating head… (More)
A 450 Mev electron 350 Mev positron linear accelerator system is described which has been designed as an injector for a storage ring. Several positron containment systems are considered and a stepped… (More)
Should clinical trials indicate that negative pion therapy is an improvement over present radiotherapy techniques, reliable pion sources of acceptable cost and size will be required at a number of… (More)
Microwave electron accelerators in the 3 MeV to 1 GeV range are being developed and produced for a variety of applications. Clinically useful X-ray, electron, neutron and pion beams can be produced… (More)
