Abstract

The aim of the Finnish BNCT-project is to start BNC-treatments of malignant brain tumors. The first clinical trial is planned to start in early 1999 at the treatment facility of the 250kW FiR 1 TRIGA research reactor. Excellent patient treatment facilities have been built at the reactor which is located only 5 km from the Helsinki University Central Hospital making the treatment facility very easy to reach.
