Characterizing the Effect of the Directional Dependence of a MicroDiamond Detector...


Candice McCallum from the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre, Belfast, discusses a study she carried out with colleagues at her institution. The study deals with the characterization of the effect of the directional dependence of a microDiamond detector on quality control testing of dynamic conformal arc stereotactic radiosurgery treatment plans. She begins by giving an introduction to their stereotactic service, small field detectors and STEEV phantom. She then delves into the method used in the study, including initial assessment of microDiamond response and the impact on stereotactic plan quality control. She concludes with the results as well as a look into further work planned in the future at Northern Ireland Cancer Centre.
