The present work is devoted to optimizing the sensitivity-doses relationship of a bench-top EDXRF system, with the aim of achieving a detection limit of 0.010mg/ml of gold nanoparticles in tumor tissue (clinical values expected), for doses below 10mGy (value fixed for in vivo application). Tumor phantoms of 0.3cm3 made of a suspension of gold nanoparticles(More)
The present work investigates preliminary feasibility and characteristics of a new type of radiation therapy modality based on a single convergent beam of photons. The proposal consists of the design of a device capable of generating convergent X-ray beams useful for radiotherapy. The main goal is to achieve high concentrated dose delivery. The first step(More)
This work introduces a new, versatile and robust X-ray detector with hemispherical 2π geometry, based on a set of 15 small cylindrical proportional counters located in a hexagonal and pentagonal fullerene C60 pattern, at the same distance from the center (where a sample is placed). The counteranode consists of stainless steel sewing needles with spherical(More)
Fricke solution has a wide range of applications as radiation detector and dosimetry. It is particularly appreciated in terms of relevant comparative advantages, like tissue-equivalence when prepared in aqueous media like gel matrix, continuous mapping capability, independence of dose rate and incident direction, as well as linear dose response.
