Abstract:

The usefulness of the method of experimental radiosurgery of the brain depends on a careful planning of the operative procedure, the shape of the lesion being related to the distribution of isodose curves in the tissue. A system for automatic densitometric measurements was developed which permits automatic evaluation of dose distributions in volumes of various size by means of photographic emulsions or in-phantom chemical dosimeters. The apparatus is also convenient for the semi-automatic calculation of dose distributions in multiple field procedures. Author
