Title:
The Munich Fission Neutron Therapy Facility MEDAPP at the research reactor FRM II. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: At the new research reactor FRM II of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the facility for Medical Applications (MEDAPP) was installed where fast neutrons are available as a beam for medical use. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thermal neutrons induce fission in a pair of uranium converter plates and generate fast neutrons which are guided to the patient by a beam tube. The maximum opening of the multi leaf collimator (MLC) is 30x20 cm2 WxH. The beam is characterized by neutron-photon mixed...    »
