コースについて

Hello and welcome to this course! The NPAP - Medical Applications of Accelerators is one out of three courses in the Nordic Particle Accelerator Program (NPAP). Here you will be taken on a tour focusing on the medical applications of particle accelerators. You will see that there are two very important, but different, applications of accelerators in hospitals. The first application concerns radiotherapy of tumours and the other concerns the production of medical nuclides for diagnosis and treatment. Both will be included in this course and described through four modules. The first module offers the basic principles of radiotherapy from a medical and physics point of view. You there learn about the main components of the machines used for radiotherapy and get to know why radiotherapy is important for cancer treatments. The second module guides you through the different types of linear accelerators used in the machines for radiotherapy. It also describes the design of the treatment head. The design is important because it is the settings of the treatment head that determines the dose and the radiated region. It is also in the treatment head where the dose given to the patient is measured. In the third module you are introduced to proton therapy. In this type of therapy protons are first accelerated and then guided down to the tumour by magnets. The machines are considerably larger and more expensive than machines used for radio therapy. The module also offers a description and comparison between different types of accelerators, and explains how the protons interact with tissue. Also ions that are heavier than protons can be used in cancer therapy. This is described in the fourth module, where we also introduce you to the production of medical nuclides. You learn how the nuclides are produces in proton and ion accelerators and how the nuclides come into play at different places in hospitals. Medical nuclides are for instance used in Positron Electron Tomography, PET. Enjoy!...

Even though the lecturer speaks monotonously, he was still able to deliver and I have gained a deeper understanding of electron linacs . I also got to know about proton and heavy-ion radiotherapy for the first time.

Thanks for first, i learned from this course the structure and function of accelerator and i have also known difference kind of pronton therapy and how they are produced.

Informative but the instructor was a bit monotonous. It was a bit hard to engage but I learned a lot about radiotherapy, its potential and its current flaws.

There were a lot of errors in the lecture transcripts, and the lecturer's accent was so pronounced that correct transcripts would have been useful for anyone, let alone for someone who needs to rely solely on the transcript. Someone only reading might end up wondering what saxophones have to do with treatment rooms, and what on Earth is prime stalin dose profile... The solutions to the quiz questions were not obtainable from the course materials in many cases, especially the ones with calculations, and while they were mostly basic, to be frank I find it subpar course design to not make sure the material matches to the questions, without making it clear that the course requires the student to find information outside of the course material. The graded quizzes were identical to the practice quizzes, which makes them mindless repetition. Also, because the questions were vague in many cases, it would have been easier to do the practice quizzes with trial and error (unlimited tries) than finding out by googling what the question is about (the English of the questions wasn't always too easy to interpret).

The contents were good, the quizzes were decent and no disrespect to the professor who taught us, but I felt that he was very robotic and monotonous. the concepts weren't very well explained sometimes (especially in week 3) or maybe it was just hard for me.

The content is excellent and very nicely organized. The videos were great. However for a beginner level course, more explanation of equipment working would've helped greatly
