The nuclear physics group at Complutense University (GFN-UCM) deals with all aspects of nuclear physics, including technology transfer. The state of the art knowledge in detectors, electronicas and software to handle nuclear-radiation interaction that the group has mastered over many years of participation on nuclear physics experiments along the world, is being translated, since 2004, into practical applications, devices and technologies, marketed by leading Spanish compabies. Two main areas are subject to our technology transfer. In one side Nuclear Imaging, with emphasis in pre-clinical positron imaging technology. Our group has a long standing collaboration with SEDECAL and Hospital Gregorio Marañón, who led to image reconstruction software developed at GFN-UCM to be used in more than 40 reasearch scanners along the world, located in front-line research laboratories. In the other hand, we develop MC models and MC algorithms for dose planning in radiotherapy. Our knowledge is being transfer into radiance(R), the first tool available for intra-operatory radiotherapy planning. radiance(R) is being developed by the company GMV Aerospace. The technology transfer activitis of the GFN-UCM have been funded by the gouverment of Spain, under two consecutive CENIT projects (CDTEAM and AMIT), Singular and Strategic Projects (PSE) ENTEPRASE and INNPACTO Projects PRECISION and XIORT.
