Nanodosimetrie in der Neutronentherapie
The FRM II at TUM has a facility for radiation therapy of malignant tumours using highly effective fast neutrons. Within a feasibility study we want to investigate if nanodosimetric methods can be integrated into a treatment planning software for neutrontherapy. Nanodosimetry counts ionisations in volumes of the size of a DNA segment and is a promising approach to perform biologically optimized treatment planning. A fundamental step towards treatment plan optimization are realistic weighting factors for nanodosimetric particle track properties in a voxel geometry i.e. a macroscopic volume used in treatment planning. By comparing simulation results to the result calculated with weighting factors and the known particle spectrum hitting the voxel we want to study if this approach is feasible for treatment planning based on nanodosimetry.
