    The design of a new system for the measurement of the main parameters of X-ray units used in medicine is presented. The system measures automatically the exposure time, high voltage applied, waveform of the detected signal, exposure ratio and the total exposure (dose). The X-ray detectors...

  • Evolution of dose distribution calculations in brachytherapy. Rodrı´guez-Villafuerte, M. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2000, Vol. 538 Issue 1, p149 

    In this report the evolution of dose distribution calculations is revised in detail, considering the simplest case (a point source in free space) and the more complex situation of a real encapsulated line source embedded in a scattering medium. The most recent formalism to perform the dosimetry...

    A Monte Carlo simulation of an encapsulated [sup 192]Ir source for high dose rate (HDR) prostate brachytherapy is presented. Basic dosimetric quantities related to this source are derived from the simulation data following the AAPM Task Group 43 formalism, including dose rate constant, source...

    Purpose: To illustrate that the attenuation formula based on monochromatic radiation in homogeneous objects may be used for dose regulation in body computed tomography (CT) based on patient circumference and using a simple cloth measuring tape. Material and Methods: Based on the attenuation...

    In this study, effects of radiologists' skill and experience on patient doses were investigated. Dose-area product and entrance surface doses of two groups of patients, one examined by a number of junior radiologists and another one by a senior radiologist, have been compared for the diagnostic...

    In interventional radiology, occupational radiation doses can be high. Therefore, many authors have established conversion coefficients from the dose-area product data or from the personal dosemeter reading to the effective dose of the radiologist. These conversion coefficients are studied also...
