Anisotropy of an 192iridium high dose rate source measured with a miniature ionization chamber.

The anisotropy of a high dose rate (HDR) 192Ir source was measured in air and in water using a miniature (0.147 cm3) ionization chamber. Measurements were made at a distance of 5 cm from the source center at polar angles from 10 degrees-170 degrees. The anisotropy was found to be less pronounced in water, and the anisotropy is asymmetric about the… CONTINUE READING
