Bragg Peak Live MonitoringKarim Laihem
The optimization of a hadron therapy for clinical cancer treatment needs a real-time monitoring of the longitudinal Bragg-peak position inside the patient body (PTV).
Time-of-Flight SpectrometerMedical physics group
In cancer therapy with particle radiation most of the radiation dose deposited in the patient's tissue is caused by the well understood electromagnetic interaction.
Clinical RadiotherapyKarim Laihem
In cooperation with the Clinic for Radiooncology and Radiotherapy of the RWTH Aachen University Clinic, our group studies clinically applied research topics.
