Title: LOW DOSE-RATE RADIATION FOR MEDICAL AND VETERINARY THERAPIES
Abstract:
Various embodiments relate to a method of performing microbeam radiation therapy on a subject, including: affixing a collimator to the subject at a first location; producing a first high energy radiation fan beam, wherein the width of the first fan beam in a first direction is greater than the width of the first fan beam in a second direction; and moving the subject in the second direction so that the first fan beam irradiates the subject through the collimator to produce first high dose regions alternating with first low dose regions.
