PURPOSE An implantable radiation dosimeter has been developed to monitor dose delivered at depth in patients undergoing external beam therapy. A clinical pilot study was conducted to test the safety, efficacy, and utility of the device. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten patients, all with unresectable malignant disease, were enrolled to assess implantation risk and movement of the device in the body and to compare the in vivo measured dose to the value predicted by the treatment planning system… CONTINUE READING
