Advanced Brachytherapy Physics - Vienna 2016

• new sources (radionuclides and eBT) fall in the energy range sensitive to scatter, requiring advanced BT dose calculations

• new sources and applicators have significant shielding, not compatible with current TPS based on simple TG-43

• commercially available (Acuros BV and Oncentra ACE) for 192 Ir (and academic-based TPS) can accurately calculate BT dose

• current and ongoing societal guidance for advanced BT dose calcs
