Short-lived isotopes image proton therapy in real-time

28 February 2019
Proton therapy is a way to irradiate certain cancer patients more effectively and accurately. At KVI-CART, Peter Dendooven and colleagues develop in-beam positron emission tomography (PET) of very short-lived isotopes to enable real-time monitoring of proton therapy. Within the framework of a scientific collaboration, Siemens Healthcare provides the PET scanner for this work. Learn more about this at Siemens HealthMatters (pdf).
