Abstract

In boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) an epithermal neutron beam is used to treat patients with malignant brain tumours. Prior to patient treatments, thorough experimental verification of the calculated radiation dose distributions is required.

Activation foils, ionization chambers, TL dosimeters and a SiLi detector were used in extensive series of dosimetric phantom measurements Serén Kosunen Aschan ]. Phantoms of different materials and geometries were selected to determine the absorbed dose distribution characteristics in each case. Depth–dose curves were measured along the central depth axis of the phantoms. The perpendicular profile dose curves were measured at different depths across the phantoms. The results of those measurements will be presented.
