Multiscale Modelling for Cancer Radiotherapies: from X-rays to ions

Edited by Andrey Solov'yov (MBN Research Center, Germany) and Eugene Surdutovich (Oakland University, USA)

This series in Cancer Nanotechnology provides a platform for scholars and practitioners in disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology, and medical science, to share and exchange their research, knowledge, and insights related to the scientific base of assessment of cell inactivation in the course of radiation therapy of different modalities from x-rays to ions.

New articles will appear in the collection as they are published!

  1. Ion-beam cancer therapy, an alternative to a common radiation therapy with X-rays, has been used clinically around the world since 1990s; the number of proton therapy centers as well as facilities using heavie...
