A Monte Carlo study of SPECT in boron neutron capture therapy for a heterogeneous human phantom
International Journal of Radiation Research
Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is a binary radiotherapy combining biochemical targeng with neutron irradiaon. However, monitoring the boron distribuon is a fundamental problem in BNCT. Prompt gamma rays emi"ed by boron capture reacon can be used to address the issue. Materials and Methods: The general-purpose Monte Carlo toolkits Geant4 and MCNP were used for the simulaons. A cubic phantom with so) ssue was used to study the prompt gamma emission during BNCT. The Chinese hybrid phantomfatcat:65gqldqq6fd7horvzkq4nf377u
