Radiochromic film is investigated for use in dosimetry in water phantoms as opposed to solid phantoms. Investigations are performed to measure the penetration rates of water into radiochromic film and to assess the effects on optical density that this penetration causes. The effects of film orientation during irradiation in water are also tested. Results show that only a small penetration rate is seen from water into the film which only affects the outer areas of the film, with penetration… CONTINUE READING
