Fabrication and Determination of Radiation Sensitive Features of Tissue Equivalent Gels in Radiation Dosimetry and Diagnostic Radiology
Various types of gel dosimeters have been developed so far with the names PVAL gel and MAGIC gel, have been abundantly applied in medical physics. This work is divided into two parts. First, this study aims to analyze an ultrasonic imaging device for accurate patient positioning and organ motion detection during prostate radiotherapy. The images of gel were taken before and after the irradiation, using CT, ultrasound and MRI and dose profiles were plotted. This gel will be used as a prostate phantom for the applications in trans-rectal ultrasound imaging. Secondly, this work aims to develop a realistic artificial breast Using PVAL Gel. The gel was X-rayed on a digital mammography machine which has 3 different programs which will select 3 different beam energies. Results for 2 sample thicknesses were compared against Perspex. PVAL gel was confirmed to be a close match to the Perspex for three beam energies.
