Low Dose Rate Brachytherapy | Print |  E-mail

The UWADCL is capable of calibrating the following low energy brachytherapy sources, or applicable well chambers utilizing them. All sources are calibrated in units of air kerma strength (U). For I-125, Pd-103, and Ir-192, each source model is a separate calibration point. The Cs-137 calibration point will cover most tube-type sources in the medical community.

For dosimetry information regarding specific seed models, please click here to go to the AAPM/RPC Joint Registry of Low-energy Brachytherapy Seeds meeting the AAPM dosimetric prerequisites.
