FLASH Radiotherapy is currently being studied and actively explored by medical and radiobiology communities as one of the most promising technological break-through in the future of cancer treatment as it could considerably improve the sparing of healthy tissues when compared to conventional radiotherapy. However, the FLASH effect activation mechanism still needs a thorough investigation before the characteristics of a therapeutic beam could be properly defined. In this manuscript, a new method for the on-line monitoring of therapeutic beams at FLASH intensities, based on air fluorescence and developed within the FlashDC project, is presented.

Abstract

FLASH Radiotherapy is currently being studied and actively explored by medical and radiobiology communities as one of the most promising technological break-through in the future of cancer treatment as it could considerably improve the sparing of healthy tissues when compared to conventional radiotherapy. However, the FLASH effect activation mechanism still needs a thorough investigation before the characteristics of a therapeutic beam could be properly defined. In this manuscript, a new method for the on-line monitoring of therapeutic beams at FLASH intensities, based on air fluorescence and developed within the FlashDC project, is presented.
