In this study the dosimetric properties of Plastic Water and Solid Water phantom materials are evaluated using Monte Carlo photon transport simulations. In particular, their water-equivalence with respect to absorption and attenuation of photons in the brachytherapy energy range are examined. For the given chemical compositions of the materials, the linear attenuation coefficients were calculated for photons of 1 keV-2 MeV. Moreover, absorbed doses to water in each phantom material were… CONTINUE READING
