    Abstract

    Optical CT, using a solid polyurethane (PRESAGE™) radiochromic dosimeter, has been used to evaluate dose distributions produced by the microSelectron-HDR Ir-192 source. The anisotropy functions obtained through optical CT are in good agreement with Monte Carlo and previously published results especially at polar angle above 20°. The results indicated an evident potential for using solid polymer dosimetry as an accurate method for 3-D dosimetry, although refinements to the existing methods are necessary before the technique can be used clinically.
