Research summary

Dr. Massillon-JL research is focused on high-ionization density (presence of very low-energy electron fluences) dosimetry, considering the importance in the clinic to accurately evaluate the absorbed dose delivered to patients. Especially, she investigates the response of different dosimetric materials (Thermoluminescent dosimeters, Gafchromic films and 3D gel) exposed to various types of radiation like light and heavy ions, beta particles and a broad range of photon energies. By using her knowledge about high-ionization density radiation, Dr. Massillon-JL has been involved in Medical Physics activities by doing research in brachytherapy dosimetry for prostate cancer, intravascular brachytherapy and small field dosimetry. She has collaborated with various researchers outside of Mexico and since the 1th of August 2015 she began a new collaboration with Prof. Jorge Kohanoff from Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland UK to develop a project entitled: "Secondary electron spectrum generated by low-energy photons and its localization in bulk LiF environment".
