PURPOSE To present the design and procedure of an experimental method for acquiring densely sampled organ dose map for CT applications, based on optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimeters "nanoDots" and standard ATOM anthropomorphic phantoms; and to provide the results of applying the method--a dose data set with good statistics for the comparison with Monte Carlo simulation result in the future. METHODS A standard ATOM phantom has densely located holes (in 3×3 cm or 1.5×1.5 cm grids… CONTINUE READING
