Anthropomorphic Phantoms for Confirmation of Linear Accelerator-Based Small Animal Irradiation.

Perks JR, Lucero S, Monjazeb AM, Li JJ - Cureus (2015)

Bottom Line: Three dimensional (3D) scanning and printing technology is utilized to create phantom models of mice in order to assess the accuracy of ionizing radiation dosing from a clinical, human-based linear accelerator.Phantoms are designed to simulate a range of research questions, including irradiation of lung tumors and primary subcutaneous or orthotopic tumors for immunotherapy experimentation.The phantoms are used to measure the accuracy of dose delivery and then refine it to within 1% of the prescribed dose.

FIG4: 3D printed mouse phantom with MOSFET detectors for confirmation of focal electron radiation

Mentions: Finally, for the small field, conformal surface dose measurements of the same mouse as whole body were used, but with a plug to fill the chamber hole. MOSFET detectors were placed on each side. By then irradiating one side of the model with bolus, the dose to both the planned target and the non-irradiated target were simulated. The MOSFET detectors were calibrated in 6MV X-rays and are known to be energy independent. Figure 4 shows the setup for subcutaneous tumor irradiations.
