Simple measurement method from Dresden improves accuracy in proton beam therapy

Proton beams are new high-precision weapons in the fight against cancer. However, uncertainty with regard to the range of the beams has prevented the full exploitation of the potential of this method until now. Researchers all over the world are therefore looking for ways to measure the exact range during a course of treatment. Scientists at the National Center for Radiation Research in Oncology – OncoRay and at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have succeeded in developing a surprisingly simple solution. Initial preclinical tests have already gone well.

A proton beam is similar to a bullet in that it has a certain projectile range. The power of destruction of the charged particles is greatest shortly before...

Printing implants with the laser

Whether for individual micro-implants or for micro-implants with medicine depots – additive processes are ideally suited for manufacturing such components. In the project “REMEDIS”, scientists at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) have established a highly automated laser melting process to produce or coat implants made of platinum, nickel-titanium (NiTi) or stainless steel.

For this, scientists of the Surface Technology Group used a special form of 3-D printing – selective laser micro-melting (SLµM).
