Abstract

Present interest concerns development of a system to measure photoelectron-enhanced dose close to a tissue interface using analogue gold-coated doped silica-fibre thermo luminescence detectors and an X-ray set operating at 250 kVp. Study is made of the dose enhancement factor for various thickness of gold; measurements at a total gold thickness of 160 nm produces a mean dose enhancement factor of 3.19. To verify results, simulations of the experimental setup have been performed. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
