CLRP TG-43 parameter database important in TG-43 update published in Medical Physics

Monday, October 30, 2017

In the recent Supplement 2 for the AAPM's Task Group 43 report on brachytherapy dosimetry, the CLRP had an entire section (2.D) devoted to its on-line seed database. To quote the report:

"Compared to results from most other dosimetry investigators, these online datasets generally have higher spatial resolution and include tabulated dose rates very close to the source capsule. The majority of consensus datasets included in this report (see the Appendix) have as their origin the Carleton University website with results based on the methods of Taylor and Rogers."
