A Monte-Carlo method for interface dosimetry of beta emitters.
Biologically targeted radiotherapy optimization requires accurate dose estimation, from macroscopic to cellular/subcellular dimensions. In particular, dose perturbations produced at interfaces between dissimilar media could affect therapy outcome. The magnitude of these perturbations depends on a complex set of parameters. This study investigates perturbations on electron dose for materials with atomic numbers (Z) up to 79 (79Au) at their interface with water as a function of Z, energy, dista...Expand abstract
