Purpose: During proton radiotherapy, secondary neutrons are produced by nuclear interactions in the material in the beam line before and after entering the patient. The dose equivalent deposited by these neutrons is usually not considered in routine treatment planning.

In contrast to other medical specialties that rely mainly on the. Advantages. Radiation therapy kills cancer cells in two ways depending on the effective energy of the radiative source. The amount of energy deposited as the particles traverse a section of tissue is referred to as the linear energy transfer (LET).

X-rays produce low LET radiation, and protons and neutrons produce high LET Neutron radiation is a form of ionizing radiation that presents as free l phenomena are nuclear fission or nuclear fusion causing the release of free neutrons, which then react with nuclei of other atoms to form new isotopes—which, in turn, may trigger further neutron radiation.

Free neutrons are unstable, decaying into a proton, an electron, plus an anti-electron-neutrino. For low-energy neutrons and for the mixed gamma – secondary neutron field the values for the highest radiation dose ( Gy for MeV neutrons, Gy for MeV neutrons, Gy for the mixed field) and for medium-energy neutrons and X-rays the values for 1 Gy were normalized to the 0 Gy control, which was set to % for each day Cited by: 6.
