Project summary

Growing demands of radio-oncology stipulate necessity to study a wide spectrum of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation sources perspective for radiation diagnostics and malignancy therapy.

Biological effects of pulsed ionizing radiation (rare-ionizing and dense-ionizing) have not been virtually studied by nowadays. In different information, these radiation types may have cumulative biological efficiency at lower dose and super-additive response reactions after interaction. This fact becomes especially important because up-to-date pulsed ionizing radiation sources can produce hard emission only while short low-voltage electrical discharges in gases. I.e. such sources are compact and ecologically clean compared to fission reactors, isotopes, and classic accelerators, and may be placed at clinics.

The purpose of the present project is a comparative analysis of nuclear-physical, dosimetric parameters and radiobiological characteristics of pulsed neutron, X-rays, and gamma radiation in continuous irradiation using different bio-test systems.

As a result of the project technical and medical requirements to the development of new equipment for radiation therapy and diagnostics of cancer using pulsed neutron generators and pulsed X-rays sources should be developed.
