Tumors: FIRE, an innovative dosimeter for proton therapy, passes the first tests

The project involved researchers from INFN, CNR and the Universities of Bologna, Naples, Roma Tre, Padua and Trento in the development of a flexible and inexpensive proton detector that will be able to maximize the effects of radiotherapy therapies by precisely monitoring the radiation doses released on cancer cells. The results of the experiment are published in the NPJ Flexible Electronics series of the journal Nature.
