Fluorescent nuclear track detectors based on Al2O3:C,Mg with their excellent efficiency for detection of heavy charged particles and full 3D information from laser scanning microscopy allow a multitude of issues related to ion-beam cancer therapy to be tackled. A recently established read out protocol enables the utilization of a commercial microscope similar to those available in many life-science environments. This contribution illustrates the approach, its potential and limitations, as well as applications in clinical ion beams.
