Riassunto analitico
Response of Fricke gel dosimeter at variable magnetic field-intensity
The last decades have seen rapid technological developments in the field of radiotherapy. Treatment
planning systems and radiation dose delivery are becoming increasingly complex with the emphasis on
precise definition of the target and highly sculpted dose distribution to spare nearby sensitive tissues.
Polymer and Fricke gels, measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are arguably the most promising
development in 3D dosimetry. The present work inquires Fricke gel response at variable magnetic fieldintensity.
The aim is establishing the optimal scanner to use in clinical practice in order to read out the
Fricke gels.
