The advent of improved digital imaging modalities in diagnostic and therapy is fast making conventional films a nonexistent entity. However, several radiotherapy centers still persist with film for performing quality assurance (QA) tests. This paper investigates the feasibility of using a diagnostic computed radiography (CR) system as a QA tool in radiotherapy. QA tests such as light field congruence, field size verification, determination of radiation isocentre size, multileaf collimator (MLC… CONTINUE READING
