Clinical investigations


In cooperation with radiation oncologists, our group analyzes clinical data to determine dose response curves and to derive tolerance doses in normal tissues. For ion beams, this allows analyzing the consistency of model-based RBE-predictions with clinical outcome. For photon treatments, it allows comparison of different treatment regimens and quantifying the tolerance of normal tissues.
