(The University of Bergen, 2018-12-06)Particle therapy has become an appealing therapeutic option for patients with various tumor types. The physical properties of charged particles allow for an improved dose distribution conformality compared to conventional ...Master thesis
Impact of variable proton relative biological effectiveness on estimates of secondary cancer risk in paediatric cancer patients (The University of Bergen, 2018-12-12)Background: Proton therapy has an increased dose-conformity compared to conventional radiotherapy with photons, and paediatric cancer patients receiving cranio-spinal irradiation (CSI) are routinely referred to this treatment ...Master thesis
(The University of Bergen, 2018-07-04)The use of proton beam has been introduced in medical physics for therapeutic purposes in cancer treatment and it has been proven much more efficient than conventional X-ray. Treatment planning in proton therapy is usually ...Master thesis
(The University of Bergen, 2018-06-16)Introduction: Proton therapy is a radiation treatment method growing around the world. This is mainly due to the protons ability to deposit dose more conformal compared to conventional photon therapy. Protons also ...Master thesis
