Abstract

CT, mobile and stationary x-ray cameras were used with the aim of comparing the source localization effectiveness in brachytherapy planning. Properties of orthogonal X-ray pictures were discussed and their impact on dose planning in brachytherapy was evaluated.

Differences between doses calculated for applicator positions localized by stationary and „mobile” X-ray units ranged between 6% and 11% in the rectum and 10% in the bladder, respectively.
