APPARATUS FOR PARTICLE THERAPY VERIFICATION COMPRISING A COLLIMATOR WITH MULTIPLE OPENINGS

Ion Beam Applications S.A...

1. An apparatus for charged hadron therapy verification by detecting prompt gammas produced when irradiating a target with
a charged hadron beam, the beam being directed along a beam line, the apparatus comprising:
a collimator comprising a plurality of collimator slabs of thickness (t), the collimator slabs being spaced apart to form
an array of slit-shaped openings and configured to be placed at a right angle to the beam line to allow the passage of prompt
gamma emission from the target, the collimator being defined at least by three geometrical parameters being:

the width (s) of the slit-shaped openings;
the depth (D) of the slit-shaped openings; and
the fill factor (f), with f equal to t/(t+s); and
a detection device configured for detecting the prompt gamma emission, the detection device comprising at least a portion
of scintillator material aligned with each of the slit-shaped openings;

wherein the width s, the depth D, and the fill factor f are chosen such that:
s is 3 mm or higher;
D is between 50 mm and 200 mm; and
f is lower than 0.5.
