  • AOB


Present: HT, Ruth, Will, Ollie, Ajit

  • HT
    • Fixed the emittance issue.
    • Operating point moved away from vertical resonance but at cost of intensity.
  • Ruth
    • Lectures with bio-engineering.
    • Case studentship preparation.
    • Keen to do small fields with x-rays.
    • Think about how you can do patient specific dosimetry.
    • Do something comparable with the amorphous silicon detector. Would like independent verification of the calibration.
    • FLASH RT: Stanford did cell and mice irradiation.
    • John is keen on FLASH electron irradiation on patients.
    • Hammersmith linac in a bunker in the hospital.
    • AK to set up a meeting.
    • Imaging
      • Need to integrate with commercial code.
      • Extracting from DICOM files doesn't always work perfectly.
    • Genomics information mining.
      • Based on functional MRI and PET/CT data.
      • Most patients will often have a basic MRI as part of diagnosis.
    • Camarie working on auto-contouring PhD.
  • Will
    • Looking at LARA beam line in BDSIM.
    • Discrepancy in the solenoids being propagated downstream. Beam matches starting after solenoids.
  • Ollie
    • Working on safety documentation for laser downstairs. Will hopefully be ready by the end of the year.
    • Ollie to send output from EPOCH simulation.
  • G4 User Conference. Lots of interesting talks.
    • Laser-driven ion beams
      • Paris keen to collaborate.
      • Ollie to dig out contacts.
    • Dosimetry.
      • MedAustron using G4 to do patient specific dosimetry.
