We have performed a comprehensive dosimetric characterization of the Oncura model 6711 125I seed using both experimental [LiF thermoluminscent dosimetry (TLD)] and theoretical (Monte Carlo photon transport) methods. In addition to determining the dosimetric parameters of the 6711, this report quantified: (1) the angular dependence of LiF TLD energy response functions for both point and volume detectors in water, poly(methylmethacrylate), and solid water media; and (2) the contribution of… CONTINUE READING
