Rørvik, Eivind; Thørnqvist, Sara; Ytre-Hauge, Kristian (IOP Publishing, 2019-09-23)Cell experiments have shown the proton relative biological effectiveness (RBE) to vary with dose and linear energy transfer (LET), which has led to development of variable RBE models. The RBE is normally estimated from two ...Journal article
Ytre-Hauge, Kristian (The University of Bergen, 2009-05-21)The overall objective of this thesis has been to investigate the neutron doses from radiotherapy with photons and ions. The advantages of proton and ion therapy, compared to the use of photons were also examined. During ...Master thesis
Ytre-Hauge, Kristian; Skjerdal, Kyrre; Mattingly, John; Meric, Ilker (Springer Nature, 2019-02-14)Uncertainties in the proton range in tissue during proton therapy limit the precision in treatment delivery. These uncertainties result in expanded treatment margins, thereby increasing radiation dose to healthy tissue. ...Journal article
