Using the BNCT device, tests on cells and small animals (mice, rats and rabbits) are possible. The test results will be utilized to accumulate basic data regarding boron-neutron capture therapy (BNCT), which is an innovative cancer treatment therapy, and to develop it.
※BNCT:Boron Neutron Capture Therapy
NRT devices are capable of penetration inspection using neutrons generated by irradiating metallic beryllium with a proton beam.
※NRT:Neutron Radiography Testing
X-rays released from a sample irradiated with a proton beam is measured to perform a quantitative analysis of microelements (trace elements).
