Standards for Intravascular Brachytherapy Dosimetry

Published

Author(s)

Christopher G. Soares

Abstract

The dosimetry of intravascular brachytherapy sources is quite difficult due to the small size of the sources and the close proximity at which measurements are necessary. The development of National Standards for the dosimetry of these sources is described in this paper as well as predictions of how these standards will be changed and improved upon in the future.
