Abstract The fusion of radiological and optical images can be achieved through charging a photostimulable phosphor plate (PSP) with an exposure to a field of X- or gamma-rays, followed by exposure to an optical image which discharges the plate in relation to the amount of incident light. According to this PSP characteristic, we developed a simple method for periodic quality assurance (QA) of light/radiation field coincidence, distance indicator, field size indicators, crosshair centering, coinci...

Abstract A method for evaluating scattered dose contribution in portal images acquired under clinical conditions (phantom-device distance of 30 cm) is presented. This method is based on radiographic film and ionisation chamber measurements and is valid for homogenecus polystyrene phantoms and square fields of different size. The portal imaging device consisted of a radiographic film placed between slabs of polystyrene under full build-up conditions (1.5 cm for 6 MV beam and 3 cm for 18 MV and 1 ...
