Advanced Dosimetry Phantoms Improving Radiotherapy Verification

    Press/Media: Research

    Description

    Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are working on a technology for 3D-printing dosimetry phantoms, which present physical models of the human body or its single parts used by medical physicists for verification of radiotherapy plans. TPU scientists have developed a material which enables printing not conventional models but individual ones, taking into account the characteristics of a patient. It makes it possible to plan radiotherapy more clearly. The project is carried out in the close cooperation with the Tomsk Cancer Research Institute of Tomsk National Research Medical Center.
