Radiation oncology medical physics is a subdiscipline within medical physics that has a special application of medical physics in the context of radiation oncology. However, there are three other major sub-disciplines associated with radiation oncology . Instead of using the former dosimetric concept of surface dose (SD) and half-value-layer (HVL), i.e., the depth at which the radiation dose reaches 50 % (D½), nowadays the total superficial spread and full depth of the treated lesion, i.e., the true dimensions of the target volume, is defined as the “target volume,” and then the dose is calculated to reach at least 90 % at the . evaluation. Surgical factors reported to be associated with adequate lymph and metastatic spread in human malignant melanoma. Br J Cancer ; Devices called high dose rate remote afterloading machines allow radiation oncologists to complete brachytherapy.

Hancock. Boca Raton London New. Remote afterloading btachytherapy (RAB) is a medical process used in the treatment of cancer. RAB uses a computer-controlled device to remotely insert and remove radioactive sources, close to a target (or tumour) in the body. Responsibility often rests with the physicist to implement these advances while maintaining the quality of care.

Examples from the past three decades include development of linear accelerator technology, computer imaging, 3-D treatment planning, conformal and dynamic therapy, and remote afterloading brachytherapy.

Written by the foremost experts in the field, this volume is a comprehensive text and practical reference on contemporary brachytherapy. The book provides detailed, site-specific information on applications and techniques of brachytherapy in the head and neck, central nervous.

HDR brachytherapy treatments deliver doses of more than 12 Gy/hr. As such, HDR brachytherapy treatment usually lasts a few minutes. For its obvious advantages, our interest is toward afterloading delivery. Afterloader units are composed of an encapsulated radioactive source (Ti or stainless steal) at the tip of a stainless steel drive wire.
