Heterogeneity and scatter effects on Ir-192 brachytherapy dose distribution.


We studied the effects of the presence of an air cavity and scatter due to patient size on dose distribution near an Iriduim-192 brachytherapy source (Ir-192). The source was modeled using Monte Carlo (MC) code MCNP5. The Radial dose, gL(r), and the anisotropy function, F(r,θ) specified by the AAPM TG-43 have been determined and compared with the consensus… (More)
