Purpose This study aims to investigate the dosimetric performance of a liquid-filled ionization chamber array in high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy dosimetry. A comparative study was carried out with air-filled ionization chamber array and EBT3 Gafchromic films to demonstrate its suitability in brachytherapy. Material and methods The PTW OCTAVIUS detector 1000 SRS (IA 2.5-5 mm) is a liquid-filled ionization chamber array of area 11 x 11 cm2 and chamber spacing of 2.5-5 mm, whereas the PTW… CONTINUE READING
