A comparison of dosimetry techniques in stereotactic radiosurgery.

Abstract

Accurate dosimetry of small-field photon beams used in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) can be made difficult because of the presence of lateral electronic disequilibrium and steep dose gradients. In the published literature, data acquisition for radiosurgery is mainly based on diode and film dosimetry, and sometimes on small ionization chamber or… (More)
