In-beam tests of a PET demonstrator (LAPD) for hadrontherapy beam ballistic control: data comparison to Geant4 Monte-Carlo predictions

This paper describes a small prototype of an in beam PET like detector, named ”Large Acceptance Pixelized Detector” (LAPD), developed to test technical concepts for the ion range control in the context of cancer treatments using proton or ion beams. The mechanical characteristics of this detector together with the read-out electronics are first presented. Then, results of a first experiment, performed on a 65 MeV proton beamline, are reported. Finally, we discuss the ability of Geant4 Monte-Carlo to reproduce the experimental data.
Key words: In-beam PET / hadrontherapy / Geant4 / simulation
