INTRODUCTION In the AAPM task Group No. 43 published a set of guidelines for calibration of interstitial brachytherapy sources that are in common use today

    Geometrical constraints for brachytherapy sources The radiation source used in HDR brachytherapy is a small line source, enclosed in a thin capsule, and welded to the end of a flexible drive cable. The outer dimensions of the sources vary between and mm in diameter and – mm in length, depending on the model (Pérez-Calatayud et Cited by: 5. point sources. In brachytherapy, the commonly used inter-nal sources are gamma rays emitters inside seeds or other tiny sized radioactive materials. The two main types of brachytherapy treatments in terms of the placement of the radioactive source are interstitial and contact. The Contact Brachytherapy involves placement of the radiation source in.

This Report is concerned with the spccification of sealed sources of nuclides which emit gamma rays-sources useful in brachytherapy. The Report resulted from the Council's belief that a single well-defined method for specifying the radionuclide in an encapsulated source would be advantageous for both the users and the suppliers of such sources.

Radioactive sources in brachytherapy Janez Burger Institute of Oncology, Department of Radiophysics, Brachytherapy Unit, Ljubljana, Slovenia modern brachytherapy, a great step forward was made in the s in France with the in-troduction of new radioactive isotopes and new techniques.

These innovations spread rapidly across Europe. Brachytherapy sources: Photon sources Emit gamma rays through gamma decay and possibly characteristic x rays through electron capture and internal conversion (examples: Co, Cs, Ir, I, Pd) Beta sources Emit electrons following beta source decay (example: Sr/Y) Neutron sources Emit neutrons following spontaneous nuclear.

The National Council of Radiation Protection of America recently published a report (NCRP, ) on the specification of γ-ray brachytherapy sources, which includes (Appendix A) a table of data.

Bengt E. Bjarngard. HDR Brachytherapy Physics HDR Brachytherapy and Brachytherapy Units As noted in, SectionHDR brachytherapy often is defined as treatments delivering dose greater than 12 Gy h 1, which is the equivalent of Gy min 1.

There are at least two problems with this definition: 1. It does not specify where the dose is delivered. Brachytherapy Definition: It is a method of treatment in which sealed radioactive source are used to deliver radiation at a short distance by various methods.

Brachytherapy developed largely through the use of sealed radium and radon sources. In the s, alternative artificially produced nuclides became available.
