Study of the relationship between biologic tissue heterogeneity and cyclotron U-120 fast neutrons absorbed dose distribution has shown that fatty and osseous tissue significantly changed the pattern of neutron absorbed dose distribution in the body. For example, absorbed dose increases by 20% in fatty tissue as against that in soft biologic tissue. The results permitted the authors to suggest a method for tentative estimation of fast neutron absorbed dose in a heterogeneous area that may be used in dosimetric planning of oncologic patients therapy with cyclotron U-120 neutrons.
