High beta and electron dose from 192Ir: implications for "gamma" intravascular brachytherapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE Trains of multiple 192Ir seeds are used in many clinical trials for intravascular brachytherapy. 192Ir source is commonly considered as a gamma emitter, despite the understanding that this radionuclide also emits a wide range of electron and beta energies, with a similar range of energy. The high dose from betas and electrons in the submillimeter… (More)
