Removable high intensity iridium-192 brain implants

A preclinical evaluation of the technical details and dosimetry for temporary high intensity 192Ir brain implants is presented. The canine brain was used for this quality assurance study in which direct in vivo dose measurements were done by thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD rods). Precise and reproducible positioning of the TLD rods and 192Ir ribbons were… CONTINUE READING
