Abstract
  It is important to have accurate information regarding the dose distribution for treatment planning and to accurately deposit that dose in the tissue surrounding the brachytherapy source. However, the practical measurement of dose distribution for various reasons is associated with several problems. ...  Read More

Abstract
  Low energy I-125- seeds are considered as a common source in different brachytherapy techniques for treatment of different cancers. In this study, at first, we simulated and validated I-125 (model 6711) seed according to the TG-43U1 recommendation, by GEANT4 Monte Carlo toolkit. Moreover, we simulated ...  Read More
