Influence of backscatter radiation on cranial reconstruction implants.


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)
