On the sensitivity of α/β prediction to dose calculation methodology in prostate brachytherapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE To study the relationship between the accuracy of the dose calculation in brachytherapy and the estimations of the radiosensitivity parameter, α/β, for prostate cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS In this study, Monte Carlo methods and more specifically the code ALGEBRA was used to produce accurate dose calculations in the case of prostate brachytherapy… (More)
