Optimization for stability of the deformable FlexyDos3D radiation dosimeter and curing effects

Abstract
Previous formulations of the FlexyDos3D dosimeter have shown significant changes in the dose-response over time. In this study, various formulations of the dosimeter were created and tested to see if this stability could be improved. A dosimeter that was stable over a three-day period was found. Rapid manufacture of this dosimeter for patient-specific validation of radiotherapy treatments is desirable. The use of 3D printing manufacturing techniques for thermosetting polymers require high temperatures to cure the polymer within a reasonable time. The effect of different curing temperatures and times were investigated for the FlexyDos3D radiation dosimeter for its effect on stability. No significant difference in the dose-response was found for dosimeters cured for different curing times beyond an hour. A significant dose-response offset was found between dosimeters cured at different temperatures, but the dose-response sensitivity was the same.
