Cobalt-60 is created by the neutronbased nuclear reaction 59Co(n,γ)60Co, with 60Co subsequently undergoing beta decay to 60Ni. Cobalt-60 pellets, cylinders, and/or discs are stored within a 1–2 cm sealed steel container containing ~10,000 Ci of activity. The Linear Accelerator A medical linear accelerator (linac) is a medical device that generates electron and/or photon beams usually for cancer treatment purposes. 9). indd 17 4/30/2013 5:59:04 PM 18 PART I. 9 Linear accelerator 1. Electron source.

Indd 31 4/30/2013 5:58:38 PM 32 PART I. 5. ANGIOGENESIS Normal Angiogenesis The formation of new blood vessels from preexisting larger vessels is termed angiogenesis. It is a naturally occurring process to ensure that oxygen and nutrients are provided to cells, which occurs in limited instances in adults. In adults, normal angiogenesis occurs in the female reproductive system in the lining of the uterus, and also in damaged tissues as a part of wound healing. In the embryo and children, it occurs as a normal part of development and growth.

However, this value is directly related to the electron density of the medium/tissue of interest. Conveniently, the intensities obtained from computed tomography (otherwise known as the Hounsfield unit) are directly related to the Compton mass attenuation coefficient. A significant proportion of photon interactions given as part of external-beam radiation therapy is in the Compton range; therefore, all modern treatment planning systems (TPS) utilize CT-based information to provide predictions of photon dose deposition related to radiation treatment.
