This paper describes the functionality, radiation characteristics, and clinical implementation of an implantable MOSFET radiation detector (dosimeter). The dosimeter is powered by radio frequency telemetry eliminating the need for a power source inside the dosimeter. The data can be accessed telemetrically for each treatment day during the course of therapy. The detector has been validated in vitro to confirm its accuracy. Variance between predicted and measured dose in patients is discussed… CONTINUE READING
