Computer simulator will improve radiation therapy for cancer patients, experts say

3 marzo 2015

A project to develop a computer simulator of dual foil scattering systems used in radiation therapy is underway. «The user user-friendly interface and real-time nature of the simulator also make it an effective educational tool for gaining a better understanding of the effects that various system parameters have on dose profiles,» an author said. «In other words, it will help medical physicists and linear accelerator designers to better understand the physics behind the equipment with which they will be working.»
