A new encapsulated source of 125I has been introduced for interstitial brachytherapy. This source, isoSTAR model 12501 (manufactured by Imagyn Corp.), consists of a welded titanium tube containing 125I as silver iodide uniformly coated on five silver beads. The dose rate constant and the radial dose function for this source were measured using lithium… CONTINUE READING
