Development of a scatter correction technique and its application to HDR I192r multicatheter breast brachytherapy.

This article introduces a scatter correction (SC) technique for high-dose-rate (HDR) I192r brachytherapy dose calculations in the absence of a full scatter environment near the skin. The technique uses dosimetry data derived by Monte Carlo (MC) simulations for the Nucletron microSelectron v2 HDR I192r source. The data include the primary and scatter… CONTINUE READING
