4 SDDs & Target (inside vacuum) Kaon detector

5 Positron Electron Tomography
It is a technique used to see inside the body One injects in the patient a substance containing a radioactive isotope (as C11 – glucosium). The radioactive substance is produced in an accelerator ( a ciclotron) A PET apparatus has ~ G Ray detectors

16 The 3,300-year-old mummy of King Tutankhamun is scanned to assess the need for restoration and also to attempt to discover the cause of his early death (January 2005) (Computed Tomography Imaging (CT Scan )

17 Hadron therapy Hadrons (as protons or ions. C) can be used to cure tumors. To do this one uses accelerators. The eye melanoma are curable almost Exclusively by hadron therapy The cure with a proton beam allows to deposit A big quantity of energy only in the tumoral region
