The increased sophistication of non-standard radiotherapy techniques have encouraged the development of precise, accurate and fast dosimetry systems for treatment verification. For eye plaque dosimetry verification, the Centre for Medical Radiation Physics (CMRP) have previously designed a diode based spectroscopic probe. This research aims at improving the original design by increasing the spatial resolution, reducing the angular dependence and minimising the distance between eye plaque and the detector sensitive volume.
