Fricke dosimetry for synchrotron stereotactic radiotherapyFaculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A
AbstractIn synchrotron stereotactic radiotherapy (SSR) the tumor is loaded with a high Z element, and exposed to monochromatic x-rays from a synchrotron source, in stereotactic conditions. The SSR treatment efficiency is related to the heavy element concentration achievable in the tumor, to the radiation energy, and the irradiation geometry [1,2]. The experimental dose verification of SSR in three dimensions with a good spatial resolution is highly desirable for radiotherapy . In this study, Fricke dosimeter and Monte Carlo calculations were employed for assessing 2D dose distribution.
