MediNet: Medical Network

WP Leaders: Peter Thirolf and Giulio Magrin

Under the common topical umbrella of nuclear tools applied to the medical environment, two distinct but complementary pillars are jointly pursued within the MediNet NA: the task 1 comprises research on beam-delivery methods, large-area transmission detectors, non-destructive beam-intensity measurements, improved imaging technology and reliable online dosimetry ans the task 2 will focus on the study of soft and hard tools from nuclear physics.

The mission of Task 1 within MediNet is to promote the information exchange of ongoing R&D work in the general field of radiation detection instrumentation, pursued in the participating institutions of Task 1.

TASK 2. (EBG MedAustron)
The task promotes the discussion between the two communities of experts, the specialists in ion-beam therapy and the physicists.
