Theoretical background of proton therapy and PET imaging
In this chapter, the physical background of radiation therapy with protons (section 2.1), as well as the basics of positron emission tomography (section 2.2) are reviewed. Furthermore, the proton therapy facility, where the activation experiments described in chapter 4 were carried out, is briefly presented in section 2.3.
