ADVACAM will again be participating in the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference, this year in Sydney, Australia. ADVACAM’s own Senior Scientific Researcher Carlos Granja will give a review talk at the New Technologies in Hadron Therapy Workshop, Tuesday November 13th from 14:40 – 14:55.
Granja’s presentation is based on a collaborative study on quantum imaging dosimetry, particle tracking, spatial and directional detection of mixed-radiation fields in ion beam radiotherapy with Timepix and Timepix-3.
The above image is an example of visualization by Timepix (300 µm silicon sensor) of the radiation field for (a) 48 MeV protons and (b) 88 MeV/u 12C ions entering the sensor from the right at parallel and grazing angle b to the sensor plane, respectively. Already by visual inspection we find resolved primary beam and scattered particles, as well as secondary and background particles (marked with labels).
