Interaction of Alpha Particles with Breast Tissue

Dr. Bashair M. Saied, Taghreed A. Younis


Abstract: As modern radiotherapy technology advances, radiation dose and dose distribution have improved significantly. As part of a natural evolution, there has recently been renewed interest in therapy, particularly in the use of heavy charged particles, because these types of radiation serve theoretical advantages in all biological and physical aspects. The interactions of alpha particle with matter were studied and the stopping powers of alpha particle with Breast Tissue were calculated by using Beth-Bloch equation, Zeigler's formula and SRIM software, also the Range and Liner Energy Transfer (LET) and Breast Thickness As well as Dose and Dose equivalent for this particle were calculated by using Mat lab language for (0.01-200) MeV alpha energy


Keywords: Stopping power, Range, Bethe, Ziegler, SRIM, Alpha particle, LET, Dose Equivalent Dose, Effective Dose
