B., McNamara, A., Paganetti, H., Beltran, C., Furutani, K., Perevertaylo, V., Jackson, M. & Rosenfeld, A. B. (2017). Characterization of proton pencil beam scanning and passive beam using a high spatial resolution solid-state microdosimeter. Medical Physics, 44 (11), 6085-6095.


This work aims to characterize a proton pencil beam scanning (PBS) and passive double scattering (DS) systems as well as to measure parameters relevant to the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of the beam using a silicon on insulator (SOI) microdosimeter with well-defined 3D sensitive volumes (SV). The dose equivalent downstream and laterally outside of a clinical PBS treatment field was assessed and compared to that of a DS beam.
