Abstract

BNCT is a new method in nuclear technology. The aim of BNCT application is to reduce human risk which used to kills cell targeting characteristic. The impact of using this technology should be considered before it is applied, among the effects of radiation on workers and the surrounding environment BNCT pilot plant. A research on modeling of BNCT pilot plant used a collimator for a 30 MeV cyclotron neutron sources which had been designed from the past research. Radiation shielding modeling for treatment room used MCNPX software. The radiation shielding was concrete baryte on each side that includes coated borated polyethylene 2 cm thick and it is featured with a sliding door with dimensions 220 × 87 × 200 cm coated with stainless steels 2 cm thick. Results obtained value equivalent dose rate of neutron and gamma of each 41.5 µSv.h-1 and 2.05 µSv.h-1. Effects of radiation received by workers in the form of deterministic effects did not have a significant are impact.
