Monte Carlo simulation and experimental thermoluminescence dosimetry were utilized for the dosimetric characterization of the new IsoSeed model I25.S17 125I interstitial brachytherapy seed. The new seed design is similar to that of the selectSeed and 6711 seeds, with the exception of its molybdenum marker. Full dosimetric data are presented following the recommendations in the Update of the AAPM Task Group 43 report (TG-43U1). A difference of 3.3% was found between Monte Carlo dose rate… CONTINUE READING
