    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The results of 15-year experience in radiation therapy with 6.3 MeV fast neutron using cyclotron U-120 are reviewed. The therapeutic neutron device has been created for treating malignant tumors which are radioresistant to photontherapy. Physical, radiobiological and clinical studies have been carried out. A total of 540 patients have been treated with neutron therapy. Perspectives of applying the low-energy neutron beams in oncology using technical cyclotron are discussed.
