An important cancer treatment method used in oncology is radiation therapy, in which the tumor is irradiated with ionizing radiation. In recent years, the study of the beneficial effects of short intense radiation pulses (FLASH effect) or spatially fractionated radiation (Microbeam) have become an important research field. Systematic studies of this type often require non-medical accelerators capable of producing the requested short intense pulses. At KIT, the Ferninfrarot Linac- und Testexperiment (FLUTE) can produce ultra-short electron bunches and the KIT storage ring KARA (Karlsruher Research Accelerator) is a source of pulsed X-rays. Both can be used as pulsed high-energy radiation sources and compared to conventional X-ray tubes. In this contribution, first dose simulations for FLUTE using the Monte Carlo simulation program FLUKA are presented.
