Abstract

At the university of California Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, patients have been irradiated for 10 years with heavy ions (He, C, Ne, Si). Due to the biologic efficacy of this type of radiation as well as the possibility of a precise dose application, the tumors can be irradiated with very high doses without exposing the surrounding tissues.
