Abstract : The carbon 11 -radioactivity of blood samples taken from patients undergoing tumour therapy with high energy protons was measured. The results indicate that the blood radioactivity may be a good measure of integral radiation dose from high energy protons. Future developments are discussed briefly. (Author)
