The quantitative dose validation of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plans require 2-dimensional (2D) high-resolution dosimetry systems with uniform response over its sensitive region. The present work deals with clinical use of commercially available self-developing Radio Chromic Film, Gafchromic EBT film, for IMRT dose verification. Dose(More)
One hundred patients with potentially curable squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus were treated using a combination of external beam radiation, medium-dose intraluminal brachytherapy (ILBT), and 5-fluorouracil infusion (as a radiosensitizer) from January 1990 to December 1993. The main objective was to determine late toxicity and optimization of the(More)
PURPOSE A systematic dosimetry study conforming to International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements Report Number 38, was carried out for, cancer of Cervix Stage I and II cases at Tata Memorial Hospital. METHODS AND MATERIALS The reference Volume dimension were noted for each applicator. Also 3-D dosimetry was performed for selected cases, and(More)
PURPOSE To study prostate motion from 4,154 ultrasound alignment fractions on 130 prostate patients treated with conformal radiotherapy or intensity-modulated radiation therapy at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. METHODS AND MATERIALS Each prostate patient was immobilized in a vacuum cradle. Daily treatment was verified by ultrasound scan after(More)
Traditional external beam radiotherapy of gynecological cancer consists of a 3D, four-field-box technique. The radiation treatment area is a large region of normal tissue, with greater inhomogeneity over the treatment volume, which could benefit more with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). This is a case report of IMRT planning for a patient with(More)
This work was undertaken with the intention of investigating the possibility of clinical use of commercially available self-developing radiochromic film - Gafchromic EBT film - for IMRT dose verification. The dose response curves were generated for the films using VXR-16 film scanner. The results obtained with EBT films were compared with the results of(More)
In ultrasound-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) of prostate cancer, ultrasound imaging ascertains the anatomical position of patients during x-ray therapy delivery. The ultrasound transducers are made of piezoelectric ceramics. The same crystal is used for both ultrasound production and reception. Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound devices(More)
The aim of the study is to design and validate an indigenous three dimensional Radiation Field Analyser (3D RFA). The feed system made for X, Y and Z axis movements is of lead screw with deep ball bearing mechanism made up of stain less steel driven by stepper motors with accuracy less than 0.5 mm. The telescopic column lifting unit was designed using(More)
Accurate reporting of personal dose is required by regulation for hospital personnel that work with radioactive material. Pocket dosimeters are commonly used for monitoring this personal dose. We show that operating a cell phone in the vicinity of a pocket dosimeter can introduce large and erroneous readings of the dosimeter. This note reports a systematic(More)
