Synchrotron light offers new radiation treatment strategies including binary therapies, such as photoactivation therapy (PAT) where the photoelectric interaction in a high-Z material leads to a localized source of high LET particles, e.g. Auger electrons. Microdosimetry is used to assess the efficacy of mixed field and binary radiation treatments and describes the clustering of radiation damage on the micron scale due to particles of differing type, energy and origin. The modeling of… CONTINUE READING
