GATE simulation of C hadrontherapy treatment combined with a PET imaging system for dose monitoring: A feasibility study

Abstract

The GATE package is used to perform Monte Carlo hadrontherapy simulations of a cancer treatment combined with the complete description of an associated positron emission tomography (PET) imaging device for dose monitoring. This study aimed to demonstrate that the GATE platform has the capability to perform realistic simulations in the field of hadrontherapy… (More)
