SU-E-T-602: Beryllium Seeds Implant for Photo-Neutron Yield Using External Beam Therapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate the Neutron yield obtained during prostate external beam irradiation. METHODS Neutrons, that are commonly a radiation safety concern for photon beams with energy above 10 MV, are induced inside a PTV from Beryllium implemented seeds. A high megavoltage photon beam delivered to a prostate will yield neutrons via the reaction Be-9(γ,n)2… (More)
