On the use of a single-fiber multipoint plastic scintillation detector for 192 Ir high-dose-rate brachytherapy.

The use of a single-fiber multipoint plastic scintillation detector (mPSD) for high-dose-rate brachytherapy dosimetry is feasible and shows great promise for development of in vivo applications for real-time verification of treatment delivery.

Online pretreatment verification of high-dose rate brachytherapy using an imaging panel

A pre-treatment verification system that uses an imaging panel (IP) to verify important aspects of the treatment plan and it was demonstrated that the IP can accurately measure Sk, dwell times and dwell positions.

Optimization of a multipoint plastic scintillator dosimeter for high dose rate brachytherapy.

Based on the spectral response at different conditions, an mPSD was constructed and optimized for HDR brachytherapy dosimetry and constitutes a baseline for future applications enabling real-time dose measurements and source position reporting over a wide range of dose rate conditions.

In vivo real-time dosimetric verification in high dose rate prostate brachytherapy.

This technique provided a method that could be utilized to detect gross errors in dose delivery of a real-time prostate HDR plan and exhibited agreement with the calculated data to within +/- 20%.

Technical note: removing the stem effect when performing Ir-192 HDR brachytherapy in vivo dosimetry using plastic scintillation detectors: a relevant and necessary step.

It is necessary to implement a stem effect removal technique when building a PSD for in vivo dosimetry during Ir-192 HDR brachytherapy, and the PSD developed for this study would be suitable for such an application.

A phantom study of an in vivo dosimetry system using plastic scintillation detectors for real-time verification of 192Ir HDR brachytherapy.

It is shown that the PSD system used in this study, which was capable of stem effect removal, can perform accurate dosimetry during 192Ir HDR brachytherapy treatment in a water phantom and has the potential for various online verifications of treatment delivery quality.

Adaptive error detection for HDR/PDR brachytherapy: guidance for decision making during real-time in vivo point dosimetry.

The study demonstrates that the AedA error identification during HDR/PDR BT relies on a stable dosimeter position rather than on an accurate dosimeter reconstruction, and the AEDA's capacity to distinguish between true and false error scenarios is demonstrated.

Time-resolved in vivo luminescence dosimetry for online error detection in pulsed dose-rate brachytherapy.

The time-resolved dose-rate measurements were found to provide a good way to visualize the progression and stability of PDR brachytherapy dose delivery, and the increased sensitivity for detection of dose-delivery errors compared with time-integrated dosimetry provided an increased sensitivity.
