abstract
The promising recent developments in the domain of high precision radiotherapy require a method of verification that assesses not only the individual steps but the whole chain of sub processes. We put forth three dimensional radiation dosimetry applied on anthropoid phantoms which are irradiated in the same way a s the patient. The method is based on a radiation sensitive polymer gel and NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) imaging.
