Compton camera (CC) imaging system to produce images of a PG emission during irradiation of a water phantom. We also performed MC modeling of CC based PG measurements during delivery of patient proton radiation therapy treatments. From the measured data, we determined how PG emission from oxygen and carbon changed as the elemental concentration changed in tissue equivalent phantoms, as well as how the PG emission related to the proton beam range. Using the MC data we determined how the PG… CONTINUE READING
