Mathematical Modeling for Quantum Electron Wave Therapy


The hypothesis suggesting that the physical process of quantum tunneling can be used as a form of cancer therapy in electron ionization radiotherapy was suggested in the IEEE International Conference on Electric Information and Control Engineering by G. Giovannetti-Singh (2012) [1]. The hypothesis used quantum wave functions and probability amplitudes to find probabilities of electrons tunneling into a cancer cell. In addition, the paper explained the feasibilities of the therapy, with the use of nanomagnets. In this paper, we calculate accurate probability densities for the electron beams to tunnel into cancer cells. We present our results of mathematical modeling based on the helical electron wave function, which “tunnel” into a cancer cell, therefore ionizing it more effectively than in conventional forms of radiotherapy. We discuss the advantages of the therapy, and we explain how quantum mechanics can be used to create new cancer therapies, in particular our suggested Quantum Electron Wave Therapy.
