A fast dosimetry system based on plastic scintillator detectors has been developed which allows three-dimensional measurement of the radiation field in water of beta-sources appropriate for application in cardiovascular brachytherapy. This system fulfills the AAPM Task Group 60 recommendations for dosimetry of cardiovascular brachytherapy sources. To demonstrate the use of the system, measurements have been performed with an 90Y-wire source. The dose distribution was determined with a spatial… CONTINUE READING
