Abstract

Advanced radiation therapy treatment techniques deliver highly conformal dose distributions by exploiting various dynamic machine capabilities to provide spatial and temporal beam fluence modulation. With the various degrees of freedom within a treatment plan there is a requirement to ensure that the dose being prescribed is delivered correctly and if there are any dose errors what the source of these errors are. A proposed solution is to introduce a device between the patient and the radiation source to monitor the treatment beam. This work reports on the overall suitability of scintillation-based detectors for such a purpose.
