Abstract

The advancement of delivery techniques in external beam radiotherapy and ever-increasing complexity of delivery modalities requires that quality assurance systems keep pace with smaller radiation fields, larger dose gradients and dynamic dose profiles. This work describes the development of a novel pre-treatment and in-vivo quality assurance devices for use in external beam radiotherapy, including small-beam stereotactic radiotherapy.
