Title: MO-D-PinS Room/Hall E-02: Multiparametric Fuctional Imaging in Radiation Therapy

Abstract

MRI, with its excellent soft tissue contrast and its ability to provide physiological as well as anatomical information, is becoming increasingly used in radiation therapy for treatment planning, image-guided radiation therapy, and treatment evaluation. This session will explore solutions to integrating MRI into the simulation process. Obstacles for using MRI for simulation include distortions and artifacts, image acquisition speed, complexity of imaging techniques, and lack of electron density information. Partners in Solutions presents vendor representatives who will present their approaches to meeting these challenges and others. An increased awareness of how MRI simulation works will allow physicists to better understand and use this powerful technique. The speakers are all employees who are presenting information about their company’s products.

  • Charge asymmetry in the processes e +e → μ +μ γ and e +e → π +π γ is measured using 232 fb –1 of data collected with the BABAR detector at e +e center-of-mass energies near 10.58 GeV. An observable is introduced and shown to be very robust against detector asymmetries while keeping a large sensitivity to the physical charge asymmetry that results from the interference between initial- and final-state radiation (FSR). The asymmetry is determined as a function of the invariant mass of the final-state tracks from production threshold to a few GeV/c 2. Itmore » is compared to the expectation from QED for e +e → μ +μ γ, and from theoretical models for e +e → π +π γ. A clear interference pattern is observed in e +e → π +π γ, particularly in the vicinity of the f 2(1270) resonance. As a result, the inferred rate of lowest-order FSR production is consistent with the QED expectation for e +e → μ +μ γ, and is negligibly small for e +e → π +π γ.« less
