Abstract

To optimize beam delivery and conformality of proton therapy, MRI integration has been proposed. Therefore, we investigated if proton irradiation in a magnetic field would change biological responses. Our data in cancer cell lines and stem cell-derived organoid models suggest that a magnetic field does not modify the biological response. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
