Description

Particle detectors find increasing applications in medicine. The broad spectrum of particles used in medicine requires a variety of instruments, which are mostly based on concepts originally developed within HEP, Nuclear Physics or Astro-physics. The optimization of these instruments for clinical use will be shown on examples in dosimetry, beam diagnostics and in the wide field of imaging.
