Monte Carlo dosimetry for 125I and 103Pd eye plaque brachytherapy with various seed models.

Abstract

PURPOSE Dose distributions are calculated for various models of 125I and 103Pd seeds in the standardized plaques of the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS). The sensitivity to seed model of dose distributions and dose distributions relative to TG-43 are investigated. METHODS Monte Carlo simulations are carried out with the EGSnrc user-code… (More)
