A Monte Carlo simulation study on the secondary neutron dose in passive proton therapy

Fatemeh Sadat Rasouli

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, , Pages 33-38


  Among the approaches commonly used to extend the sharp peak of the deposited dose in proton therapy, passive scattering is widely used and also is of concern because of the potential for generating secondary particles, especially neutrons, which can damage the non-target healthy tissues. The present ...  Read More

Efficiency of the layered BSA model for BNCT of deep tumors based on photoneutron sources

S. Farhad Masoudi; Fatemeh Sadat Rasouli

Volume 2, Issue 2 , June 2021, , Pages 29-35


  ‎Due to the selectively treating tumors and largely sparing normal neighboring cells‎, ‎Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) continues to be of special significance and interest for wide groups of researchers‎. One of the most important challenges in this context is to design an optimized ...  Read More

Analytical range evaluation for therapeutic protons in stack of materials

Fatemeh Sadat Rasouli

Volume 1, Issue 2 , June 2020, , Pages 35-39


  ‎As one of the most clinically relevant parameters in proton radiotherapy‎, ‎the range of incident particles can be measured either by counting the number of protons or through depth-dose evaluation in the target‎. ‎In the latter‎, ‎the range is defined as the depth in the ...  Read More
