The biological effectiveness of antiproton irradiation

Published inRadiotherapy and oncology, vol. 81, no. 3, p. 233-242
Publication date2006

Antiprotons travel through tissue in a manner similar to that for protons until they reach the end of their range where they annihilate and deposit additional energy. This makes them potentially interesting for radiotherapy. The aim of this study was to conduct the first ever measurements of the biological effectiveness of antiprotons.
