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

Objective Functions Performance in the Multi-Objective Fuel Management Optimization

Farrokh Khoshahval

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, Pages 13-19


  Selecting a genuine objective function in the fuel management optimization (FMO) of newly developed reactors is fundamentally important. The FMO problem becomes harder when a multi-objective fitness (cost) function (MOCF) is in use. Usually, when undertaking a MOCF fuel management optimization problem, ...  Read More

Removal of Th(IV) ions from aqueous solution using newly developed bi-component bio-based adsorbents

Saeed Alamdar Milani; Ali Yadollahi; Mohammad Faryadi

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, Pages 21-31


  An immobilized hybrid biosorbent (IHB) was prepared by hybridizing two biosorbents and evaluated for its ability to remove thorium ions from aqueous solution. The combined effect of the initial pH of solution (2 to 6), initial Th(IV) ion solution concentration (50-300 mg.L-1), IHB dose (0.5-5 g.L-1), ...  Read More

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

Calculation of magnetic field effects on dose distribution, inside a heterogeneous phantom, in MR-guided helium ion-therapy using FLUKA Monte Carlo simulation code

Nahid Hajiloo

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, Pages 39-42


  In this work, the impact of magnetic field presence on the central axis depth-dose curves of helium ion beams inside a heterogeneous phantom with air and bone layers was investigated. According to the calculations, presence of the magnetic field has a considerable impact on the dose distribution of helium ...  Read More

Investigation of the response of chromium nitrate solutions as a chemical dosimeter for agricultural applications

Sedigheh Kashian; Hamideh Daneshvar; Peiman Rezaeian; Mohammad Rafiean

Volume 3, Issue 1 , February 2022, Pages 43-47


  ‎Irradiation of agricultural products is used to optimize properties and pest control and also increase the storage time of products‎. ‎The desired irradiation result is obtained when the required dose is given to the sample‎. ‎Dosimetry is a method for separating and classifying ...  Read More
