Dosimetric parameters of the new design (103)Pd brachytherapy source based on Monte Carlo study.

Abstract

In this study version 5 of the MCNP photon transport simulation was used to calculate the dosimetric parameters for new palladium brachytherapy source design following AAPM Task Group No. 43U1 report. The internal source components include four resin beads of 0.6 mm diameters with (103)Pd uniformly absorbed inside and one cylindrical copper marker with 1.5… (More)
