Tracking oxygenation during radiotherapy
Oct 15, 2012 | Medical Physics Web
The ability to quantify tissue oxygenation during radiotherapy could allow treatment conditions to be optimized during the radiation course. Current methods for measuring oxygen partial pressure in tissue are invasive, however, so [Brian Pogue's] research team headed up at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) is investigating an alternative: using Cerenkov emission generated by the treatment beam to provide information on tissue oxygenation (Biomed. Opt. Express 3 2381).
