BlueBEAR HPC Service Supports Proton Therapy Research

A new generation of particle detectors uses tiny scintillating fibers (photo) in combination with ultrasensitive photomultipliers made of silicon to detect a proton's path.

Researchers at the University of Lincoln in the U.K. are using the BlueBEAR HPC service to simulate the use of protons for CT imaging. Generally reliant on X-rays to image the body’s composition and healthy tissue location before treatment, doctors are looking to the the project to build a device capable of delivering protons in a clinical setting.
