SU-E-T-494: Variation of Mucosal Dose in Head-And-Neck Radiotherapy: A Phantom Study Using Monte Carlo Simulation.

Abstract

PURPOSE This phantom study investigated variations of mucosal dose on photon beam energy, beam angle, multi-beam configuration and mucosal thickness, when using small photon fields in head-and-neck radiotherapy. METHODS Cylindrical mucosa phantoms with bone and air heterogeneities were created with mucosal thickness (normal tissue) equal to 1, 2 and 3 mm… (More)
