Germans use spectroscopy to cut beam-range uncertainty
German scientists are convinced that measuring the energy of gamma rays emitted during helium-ion radiotherapy can provide real-time verification of the beam's range in the patient. They have shown how to define the size of the range error in particle therapy, allowing more precise treatments with greater sparing of healthy tissue.
