Feasibility study on the use of SPECT for boron dose imaging in TRR-based BNCT

Mahdieh Sadat Mousavi; Faezeh Rahmani

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, , Pages 1-12

  Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) is one of the promising treatment methods for some malignant tumors such as Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). One of the requirements of BNCT treatment is the accurate and real-time boron-concentration monitoring to ensure the efficacy of treatment and no leakage of ...  Read More

Scintillation properties of CsI(Tl) co-doped with Tm2+

Sajjad Shahmaleki; Faezeh Rahmani

Volume 2, Issue 2 , June 2021, , Pages 13-19

  In this research, the Tm content as codopant in CsI(Tl) was optimized for reducing the afterglow. As an experimental reference, CsI(Tl) and CsI(Tl-0.05%Eu) single crystals were grown by Bridgman method. The grown crystals were characterized through photoluminescence analysis, and the measurements of ...  Read More

Feasibility study of Mo-99 production using high-power electron Linac: Nuclear and thermal-mechanical analysis based on photoneutron interaction

Ali Taaghibi Khotbesara; Faezeh Rahmani; Farshad Ghasemi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 9-17

  ‎This work presents an alternative method for Mo-99 production as a parent nuclide of Tc-99m which is the most used radioisotope in diagnostic imaging processes‎. ‎Regarding to some benefits of accelerator-based methods over reactor-based methods for Mo-99 production‎, ‎the electron ...  Read More
