Measurement of absorbed doses near metal and dental material interfaces irradiated by x- and gamma-ray therapy beams.

Abstract

Soft-tissue damage adjacent to dental restorations is a deleterious side effect of radiation therapy which is associated with low-energy electron scatter from dental materials of high electron density. This study was designed to investigate the enhancement of dose to soft tissue (or water) close to high electron-density materials and to measure the detailed… (More)
