Open AccessThe absorbed dose assessment in the presence of tissue heterogeneities in external radiotherapy is an issue that has concerned the medical physics community for almost three decades and it is still a matter of concern. ...
An algorithm to assess the need for clinical Monte Carlo dose calculation for small proton therapy fields based on quantification of tissue heterogeneity Bueno Vizcarra, Marta; Paganetti, H.; Duch Guillen, María Amor; Schuemann, J. (2013)
Restricted access - publisher's policyPurpose: In proton therapy, complex density heterogeneities within the beam path constitute a challenge to dose calculation algorithms. This might question the reliability of dose distributions predicted by treatment ...

Open AccessAcuros XB (AXB) is a deterministic algorithm that directly accounts for the effects of heterogeneities and improves the accuracy of photon dose calculations in radiotherapy. Nevertheless, the accuracy of AXB inside lung ...
On the suitability of ultrathin detectors for absorbed dose assessment in the presence of high-density heterogeneities Bueno Vizcarra, Marta; Carrasco, P.; Jornet, N.; Muñoz Montplet, C.; Duch Guillen, María Amor (2014-08-01)
Restricted access - publisher's policyPurpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of several detectors for the determination of absorbed dose in bone.; Methods: Three types of ultrathin LiF-based thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) two ...
