Reports Summarize Applied Radiation Research Study Results from Institute for Advanced Studies

February 7, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Applied Radiation Research is now available. According to news reporting from Frankfurt, Germany, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "We present a series of implementations on Monte Carlo track structure level which might have an impact on treatment planning for particle therapy."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Institute for Advanced Studies, "We evaluated the effect of multiple ion scattering and radical diffusion on the nanoscopic radial dose. Our cross section database for electron interactions was extended to be able to predict the sensitizing effect of gold nanoparticles in particle therapy."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We also implemented LiF as a possible target for efficiency calculations of thermoluminescent detectors (TLDs)."
