The next Physical Seminar of OK Polish Physics Society will be held on the 25th of November 2021 at 16:15, online on the MS TEAMS platform.
Dr hab. Renata Kopeć, Prof. IFJ (H. Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics PAS) will present:
“Five years of proton radiotherapy with the use of a pencil scanning beam at the Cyclotron Center Bronowice IFJ PAN”,
Prof. Marek Jeżabek (The H. Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences) will deliver a lecture:
“How the CCB was built.”
1. The Bronowice Cyclotron Center has two gantry stations where it is possible to use a scanning proton beam for cancer radiotherapy. Proton radiotherapy with the use of a pencil scanning beam is currently one of the most advanced and precise radiotherapeutic techniques using ionizing radiation. Its main advantage is the ability to precisely deliver high doses of radiation to neoplastic lesions while saving healthy tissues. On the 3sup>rd of November 2021, 5 years have passed since the start of proton radiotherapy with the use of a pencil scanning beam on gantry stations at the Bronowice Cyclotron Center at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
2. Memories from the years 2004 – 2016 and a few remarks about proton radiotherapy in Poland.
