Experimental and Monte Carlo determination of the TG-43 dosimetric parameters for the model 9011 THINSeed brachytherapy source.

Abstract

PURPOSE AAPM TG-43 brachytherapy dosimetry parameters for a new, smaller diameter 1251 brachytherapy source (THINSeed, model 9011) were determined using LiF:Mg,Ti thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD-100) microcubes and Monte Carlo simulations. METHODS Two polymethyl methacrylate phantoms were machined to hold TLD-100 microcubes at specific locations for the… (More)
