Influence of backscatter radiation on cranial reconstruction implants.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE We aimed to evaluate backscatter dose variations in different cranial bone implant materials in an experimental model designed to simulate post-operative radiotherapy. METHODS We assessed the radiation backscatter doses associated with sheet- and mesh-type titanium plates and hydroxyapatite (HAP) samples (porosity: 35%, 50% and 85%). The samples… (More)
