Peripheral equivalent neutron dose model implementation for radiotherapy patients.

Abstract

PURPOSE Neutron peripheral contamination in high-energy radiotherapy implies an increase of secondary radiation-induced cancer risk. Although peripheral neutron dose (PND) has been evaluated in organs, few studies have been performed regarding patient size. This work aims to improve an existing methodology for adult patient PND estimations to generalize it… (More)
