PURPOSE To investigate the dosimetric effect of the air inside the SAVI™ partial breast irradiation device. METHODS The authors have investigated how the air inside the SAVI™ partial breast irradiation device changes the delivered dose from the homogeneously calculated dose. Measurements were made with the device filled with air and water to allow comparison to a homogenous dose calculation done by the treatment planning system. Measurements were made with an ion chamber, TLDs, and film… CONTINUE READING
