From 2008 to 2011, several planned modifications were implemented at the RA-6 reactor in Argentina, leading to significant benefits for future BNCT treatments. New capabilities have been implemented in NCTPlan treatment planning system. To assess the performance of the new BNCT facility, a dosimetric reevaluation of previous clinical cases was performed, taking into account the modifications carried out in the new facility and compared the results of the original treatment plans with optimized… CONTINUE READING
