A BSTRACT : The distribution of the prompt gamma emissions induced by proton interactions in a target material carries information concerning the proton range and target composition. We propose multiple approaches for prompt gamma imaging depending on the quantity of interest and the detection scenario. The first approach is a practical design based on knife-edge collimator utilized in tandem with a compact PET type detector to verify range by measuring depth distribution of prompt gamma in an…

Characterization of Single-Photon Time Resolution: From Single SPAD to Silicon Photomultiplier
In this paper, we report on the characterization of the single-photon time resolution (SPTR) of the RGB (Red-Green-Blue) type silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) produced at FBK. We measured and compared
3D prompt gamma imaging for proton beam range verification
3D PG imaging for proton range verification under clinical beam delivery conditions is possible with a single Compton camera, and shifts in the proton beam range as small as 2 mm could be detected for delivery of a 2 Gy spot.
Dataset for predicting single-spot proton ranges in proton therapy of prostate cancer
A dataset where 43 single-spot anterior beams with defined proton energies were delivered to a prostate phantom with an inserted endorectal balloon (ERB) filled either with water only or with a silicon-water mixture is described and shared.
