-collimated configuration with mono-energetic proton beams of 165 MeV and 224 MeV, respectively. Results acquired by means of trans- versal PGS at different phantom depths, ranging from 6 cm before the Bragg peak (BP) to 3.5 cm beyond the BP in 5 mm steps with a 1 cm slit collimation (tungsten) showed a slight decrease of PG yields after the BP. Similar measurements with a semi-opened collimation configuration demonstrated a steeper decrease of PG yields after the BP.

In a conventional

different phantom materials especially in T2-weighted images (except for the bone surrogate). T2- weighted readout of the dosimetric gel allowed approximate proton range verification. Fusing 3D printing with the usage of gels and designing phantoms based on patient imaging data enabled the development of an anthropomorphic multimodality head phantom prototype that successfully underwent every step in proton therapy treatment.

protocol. Carryover, matrix effect, reference range verification, precision studies for creatinine were performed according to the CLSI EP10-A3, CLSI EP14-A2, CLSI EP28-A3c protocols and CLSI EP05-A2, respectively [ 9 ]. Thus, 40 serum samples from 20 healthy female and male were analyzed by LC-MS/MS method, and the obtained results were compared with the creatinine reference ranges of the Mayo Medical Laboratory. The reference intervals of serum creatinine were 0.8–1.3 mg/dL for adult male (n=20), and 0.6–1.1 mg/dL for adult female (n=20). Statistical analysis

range telescope. The implemented RMF model predicted a mean RBE of 1.26 for the carbon-iCT with a physical dose of 40mGy. This study quantitatively presents the experimental outcomes of a multi-ion iCT comparison and puts forward the clinical potential for range verification in ion-beam therapy, with a focus on the biological dose calculation. Future investigations aim at extending the multi-ion comparison with particular reference to the biological response for low-dose imaging and the use of iCTs for treatment planning.

documents are required for manual verification prior to establishing a business relationship or conducting any transaction. This method is prone to data errors, which lowers productivity and can result in a poor user expe- rience. A trusted digital data hub can serve as a reliable and independent source for a collection of wide-ranging, verified attributes about an individual’s identity. These attributes can facilitate customer digital on-boarding prior to establishing a business relationship, as well as support transactions in both the digital and physical world

indirect existence proof by turns of phrase so foolish that I cannot reproduce them here. The second part of Ambrose’s article contains clear intimations of Wittgenstein’s verificationist philosophy that prevented him from accepting predicate logic, as in “with general forms of infinite range, ‘verification by exhibition of instances’ is meaningless” (p. 319). That objection against universal quantification has force only if the method 6.2 Stricter than Skolem: Wittgenstein and His Students • 157 of proof by generalization is absent.
