Many expressed concerns about the potential increase in second cancer risk from the widespread shift to intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) techniques from traditional 3-D conformal radiation treatment (3D CRT). This paper describes the study on in-phantom measurements of radiation doses...
Surface dose monitoring in patients and physicians during 29 uterine artery embolisation (UAE) procedures was performed using photoluminescence dosemeters and thermo-luminescence dosemeters. Organ or tissue doses were measured with an anthropomorphic phantom using UAE exposure conditions averaged...
Multisphere neutron spectrometers with active thermal neutron detectors cannot be used in high-intensity radiation fields due to pulse pile-up and dead-time effects. Thus, a multisphere spectrometer using a passive detection system, specifically gold foils, has been investigated in this work. The...
Absorbed tissue dose measurements are carried out for high-energy photon beams using CaSO 4 :Dy thermo-luminescence dosemeter (TLD) badge and the results are also verified using ionisation chamber used in radiation therapy. The photon beams generated using linear accelerator at 6 and 18 MV photon...
A single-parameter geometry to describe soil is achieved for Monte Carlo calculation of absorbed dose rate in air for photon emitters from natural radionuclides. This optimised geometry based on physical assumptions consists of the soil part whose emitted radiation has a given minimum probability...
