Feasibility study on the use of 3D silicon microdosimeter detectors for microdosimetric analysis in boron neutron capture therapy

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper presents the feasibility study of a novel 3D mesa bridge microdosimeter and its use for BNCT dosimetry. The performance of the microdosimeter was studied using Monte Carlo simulation. The clinical BNCT field at Kyoto University Reactor (KUR) using both thermal and epithermal irradiation modes were used in this study. Results show that this microdosimeter can be utilised as an effective tool to measure microdosimetric spectrum in the BNCT field and experimental validation will follow once KUR is operational.
