Microdosimetric assessment of the radiation quality of a therapeutic proton beam: comparison between numerical simulation and experimental measurements.

Abstract

Using protons for the treatment of ocular melanoma (especially of posterior pole tumours), the radiation quality of the beam must be precisely assessed to preserve the vision and to minimise the damage to healthy tissue. The radiation quality of a therapeutic proton beam at the Centre Antoine Lacassagne in Nice (France) was measured using microdosimetric… (More)
