Samenvatting

To evaluate the possibility of combining proton therapy with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) as a therapy monitor and as a tool for in situ dosimetry during therapy, proton activiation experiments have been performed using a 55 MeV proton beam on two different materials. The 3-D measurements of the induced activity with PET are compared with the calculated dose distribution and with model calculations.
