The in-beam PET method is a valuable tool to measure the distribution of the delivered dose in the irradiated tissue in carbon ion therapy which has so far been applied to more than 300 patients. In order to evaluate the PET data with respect to the patient anatomy, positioning and range of the beam [2], they need to be comparedwith a simulation of the expected activity distribution [1]. Although these algorithms are well adapted to the therapeutic situation, there are differences that can be… CONTINUE READING
