A new way to optimise dose delivery and beam monitoring for proton beam therapy has gained £300k funding from the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
JetDose technology offers potential to improve treatment outcomes and increase patient throughput at cancer treatment centres.
JetDose is a novel real-time beam monitor and dosimetry system being developed by the University of Liverpool’s QUASAR group in collaboration with beam instrumentation innovator D-Beam, IBA which specialises in ion beam treatment facilities, and clinical facilities in the UK and abroad.
Project leader and University of Liverpool department of physics head Professor Carsten Welsch said the project will address a global unmet need
