Physics applied to radiotherapy and dosimetry

Anne-Marie Frelin (GANIL, Caen, France)

Modern medicine and especially radiotherapy have benefited greatly from nuclear physics and instrumentation. Existing treatments are constantly optimized and new treatment modalities developed. These new therapeutic approaches require preliminary investigations to determine their efficiency, their toxicity and determine the underlying biological mechanisms. In this presentation, after an introduction on radiotherapy and dosimetry, we will review two dosimetry projects in the radiobiology domain:
•preclinical dosimetry performed with a scintillating fiber dosimeter
•dosimetry for in vitro assessment of Targeted Alpha Therapy
In both cases, we will focus on the physics and instrumentation aspects of dosimetry.
