Modeling of Biological Effect of Charged Particles for C-Ion RT
Absorbed dose is considered to be the most fundamental physical quantity in describing biological effects of ionizing radiations. The effect is then expressed as a function of the dose, which enables these effects to analyze quantitatively.
