Title: Optimisation of an epithermal beam in HIFAR for boron neutron-capture therapy.
Authors: Harrington, BV
Issue Date: Aug-1987
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: A calculational study was undertaken to investigate the feasibility of developing an epithermal beam in the 10H horizontal facility of the HIFAR research reactor suitable for boron neutron-capture therapy of deep-seated metastatic melanoma. The filters considered were Al Al/S and AlF-3. Dose intensities and therapeutic gains in a phantom were calculated to determine optimum neutron and gamma filter lengths.
