HIRO and OncoRay Lecture Series: Radiation and its Generation (Prof. Dr. Oliver Jäkel)

Radiation is the fundamental basis of radiation research and radiation application in oncology. This lecture provides an introduction to different types of radiation used in radiation oncology like Co-60 sources, neutrons, Megavoltage X-rays and heavy charged particles like protons and ions. Some of the principles of generation of radiation will be explained, like the electron linear accelerators and particle accelerators. The lecture will also highlight some historic and future developments.

The lectures take place online only via Zoom. All DKTK members are invited to register via e-mail to marcel.schaefer@dkfz-heidelberg.de to one or even all lectures of the lecture series.
