Development and Characterisation of Online Detector for Advanced Radiotherapy Treatment Verification

Many medical procedures, including diagnostic (X-ray) imaging used to aid in the diagnosis of disease and radiotherapy for cancer treatment, involve the use of high energy ionising radiation. There is much to be gained from the knowledge of how that radiation is formed, interacts with devices and tissues, and deposits energy along its path. Thesemore…

Developing the next generation of cancer radiation therapy

By Daniel Bartels • June 10th, 2015

A team of researchers led by Professor Martin Ebert from The University of Western Australia and Director of Physics Research at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is using the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre’s resources to develop safer and more efficient methods of cancer treatment through radiation therapy. The project is studying radiation detector response to high-energy X-raymore…
