The investigation of boron biodistribution by neutron induced autoradiography was performed using a CR-39 etched track detector. Calibration samples, made of boronated chicken liver, and freeze-dried mouse tissue samples were irradiated both with thermal and cold neutrons. Digital images were made on the basis of track densities, with the selection of(More)
Heavy-ion radiotherapy is an efficient method for the treatment of deep-seated tumors, because the stopping of ions in a tissue delivers the maximal absorbed dose to the tumor-affected areas with minimal damage to the healthy tissues. However, heavy ions can undergo nuclear reactions, giving products with lower Z-values and hence a longer range in the(More)
