Abstract

An essential issue is an accurate evaluation of surface dose distribution for such sensitive treatments. This work aimed to feasibility of the dual application of the Ferrous Polyvinyl Alcohol Glutaraldehyde Methylthymol Blue (PVA-GTA-MTB) gel as a bolus compensator and surface dosimeter in breast radiotherapy. The differences between the surface dose measured using PVA-GTA-MTB gel and film dosimetry in the medial and lateral parts of the breast were 3.74 and 4.18, respectively. A qualitative comparison of the isodose curves showed that the PVA-GTA-MTB bolus creates a uniform dose distribution similar to the superflab bolus in the target volume.
