Microdosimetry of a 42 MeV therapy neutron beam.

Abstract

Radiation quality of fast neutron therapy beams can change with depth. For a neutron beam generated by p----Be, the primary effect is a "hardening" of the neutron beam produced by the scattering of slow neutron components. A 42 MeV neutron therapy beam was investigated using microdosimetric techniques. We report measurements of dose mean and saturation… (More)
