PURPOSE The purpose of this work was threefold: First, to determine which type of charge-coupled device (CCD) would provide the best dosimetric precision for plastic scintillation detectors (PSDs); second, to design a high-photon-efficiency PSD system by optimizing its signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) using off-the-shelf technology; and third, to establish the spatial, temporal, and dose precision limits of such a PSD system. The authors have attempted to design a dosimetric tool suitable for… CONTINUE READING
