This short offers an in-depth evaluate of the physics of hadron treatment, starting from the historical past to the most recent contributions to the topic. It covers the mechanisms of protons and carbon ions on the molecular point (DNA breaks and proteins 53BP1 and RPA), the physics and arithmetic of accelerators (Cyclotron and Synchrotron), microdosimetry measurements (with new effects up to now achieved), and Monte Carlo simulations in hadron treatment utilizing FLUKA (CERN) and MCHIT (FIAS) software program. The textual content additionally comprises information regarding proton treatment facilities and carbon ion facilities (PTCOG), in addition to a comparability and dialogue of either suggestions in remedy making plans and radiation tracking. This short is appropriate for rookies to clinical physics in addition to pro experts in radiation oncology.

This type of radiation removes electrons from the atoms of tumor cells and destroys cellular DNA, and consequently the construction plans for essential proteins. Thus, cells stop replicating and die, as mentioned earlier. However, it must be emphasized that energy is only partially transferred to the tumor. Modern techniques have partially solved this problem . Photon beams impact the tumor from multiple directions and accurately discharge their maximum energy. At the same time, mobile apertures sweep healthy tissues sensitive to radiation.
