Abstract Purpose To compare the dose measured by MOSkin dosimeters coupled to a trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) probe to the dose predicted by the brachytherapy treatment planning system (BTPS) during high dose rate (HDR) prostate brachytherapy (pBT), and to examine the feasibility of performing real-time catheter-by-catheter analysis of in-vivo rectal dosimetry during TRUS based HDR pBT. Method Four MOSkin dosimeters were coupled to a TRUS probe during 20 TRUS-based HDR pBT treatment fractions. ...

Abstract Purpose The purpose of this study was to simulate treatment planning source positioning errors in transrectal ultrasound–based real-time high-dose-rate prostate brachytherapy treatments and determine appropriate in vivo source tracking error thresholds. Methods and Materials Treatment planning source positioning errors were simulated for 20 patient plans in the brachytherapy treatment planning system by manually adjusting the dwell position coordinates within selected catheters without ...

Abstract The need of a fs-scale pulsed, high repetition rate, X-ray source for time-resolved fine analysis of matter (spectroscopy and photon scattering) in the linear response regime is addressed by the conceptual design of a facility called MariX (Multi-disciplinary Advanced Research Infrastructure for the generation and application of X-rays) outperforming current X-ray sources for the declared scope. MariX is based on the original design of a two-pass two-way superconducting linear electron ...

PURPOSE: To apply Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to optimize linac quality control (QC) protocol in order to ensure patient safety and treatment quality, taking maximum advantage of the available resources. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Each parameter tested by the QC was considered as a potential failure mode (FM). For each FM, likelihood of occurrence (O), severity of effect (S), and lack of detectability (D) were evaluated and corresponding Risk Priority Number (RPN) was calculated from the...
