In Boron Neutron Capture Therapy, the boronated drug plays a leading role in delivering a lethal dose to the tumour. The effectiveness depends on the boron macroscopic concentration and on its distribution at sub-cellular level. This work shows a way to colocalize alpha particles and lithium ions tracks with cells. A neutron autoradiography technique is used, which combines images of cells with images of tracks produced in a solid-state nuclear track detector.
