The purpose of this work is to evaluate the dose rate distribution and to determine the boron effect on dose rate distribution for Cf-252 brachytherapy source. This study was carried out using a MonteCarlo simulation. To validate the MonteCarlo computer code, the dosimetric parameters were determined following the updated TG-43 formalism and compared with current literature data. the validated computer code was then applied to evaluate the neutron and photon dose distribution and to illustrate the boron loading effect.

Abstract

The purpose of this work is to evaluate the dose rate distribution and to determine the boron effect on dose rate distribution for Cf-252 brachytherapy source. This study was carried out using a MonteCarlo simulation. To validate the MonteCarlo computer code, the dosimetric parameters were determined following the updated TG-43 formalism and compared with current literature data. the validated computer code was then applied to evaluate the neutron and photon dose distribution and to illustrate the boron loading effect.
