Examination of pencil beam predictions of small-field dose using dosimetry film and Monte Carlo simulations
Kairn, Tanya, Kenny, John , Aland, Trent , Crowe, Scott, & Trapp, Jamie (2010) Examination of pencil beam predictions of small-field dose using dosimetry film and Monte Carlo simulations. In Kron, Tomas & Rosenfeld, Anatoly (Eds.) Proceedings of 16th International Conference on Solid State Dosimetry, International Solid State Dosimetry Organisation, Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, Sydney.
The iPlan treatment planning sys-tem uses a pencil beam algorithm, with density cor-rections, to predict the doses delivered by very small (stereotactic) radiotherapy fields. This study tests the accuracy of dose predictions made by iPlan, for small-field treatments delivered to a planar solid wa-ter phantom and to heterogeneous human tissue using the BrainLAB m3 micro-multileaf collimator.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
