The enormous advances in the understanding of human anatomy, physiology and pathology in recent decades have led to ever-improving methods of disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Many of these achievements have been enabled, at least in part, by advances in ionizing radiation detectors. Radiology has been transformed by the implementation of multi-slice CT and digital x-ray imaging systems, with silver halide films now largely obsolete for many applications. Nuclear medicine has… Expand

Evaluation of the dosimetric properties of a diode detector for small field proton radiosurgery
TLDR
The PTW proton diode proved to be a useful high‐resolution, real‐time metrology device for small proton field radiation measurements such as would be encountered in radiosurgery applications because of the small SV that allows measurements without partial volume effects and the capability of submillimeter resolution.
