Comparison of gadolinium nanoparticles and molecular contrast agents for radiation therapy-enhancement.

Abstract

PURPOSE Nanoparticles appear as a novel tool to enhance the effectiveness of radiotherapy in cancer treatments. Many parameters influence their efficacy, such as their size, concentration, composition, their cellular localization, as well as the photon source energy. The current Monte Carlo study aims at comparing the dose-enhancement in presence of… (More)
