Abstract

The main burden that hinders the translation of neutron capture therapy drafts to human trials is the difficulty to deposit a sufficient amount of boron in the targeted tumour areas. Magnetic nanoparticles containing B-10 isotopes attempt to be enriched in tumour tissues selectively by the means of external magnetic fields to overcome these restrictions. First pilot measurements of the neutron depth penetration investigated the neutron flux density in dependence of depth, presence of boron and additional presence of
iron oxide nanoparticles. These irradiation experiments on different phantoms evidenced no disturbing attenuation
effects of the applied boron and the co-present nanoparticles in the samples.
