Task 2 focuses on software and hardware tools from nuclear physics for the assessment of the radiation quality in ion-beam therapy. The approach is multidisciplinary to study from one side the physical parameters of the radiation and on the other side the correlations to the biological effects. Working groups are formed for studies on Monte Carlo modelling of physical and biological parameters, studies for biological dosimetry, microdosimeters based on proportional counters and solid-state detectors, and biological and imaging compatibility of detectors for in vivo applications.

Microdosimetry Repository The role of this webpage is to help sharing documents, publications, data, and ideas which are helpful and instrumental for the advance of microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy.
Workshop: Microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy for beginners
Wiener Neustadt, October 9-10, 2019
The two main goals are
- creating a ‘common language’ in microdosimetry in ion-beam therapy and
- initiating collaborations between the research groups in Europe in the field of microdosimetry applied to ion-beam therapy, avoiding overlapping and promoting complementarity between the programs.
Meeting on Deliverable 5.4
Darmstadt, 20-22 May 2019
- Monday 20 May, from 10:30 to 12:30: Discussion on the topics and the structure of the deliverable;
- Wednesday 22 May, from 13:30 to 14:30: Integration of the concepts discusses during the meeting of the International Biophysics Collaboration and planning the progress of the document.
