Abstract

The technical complexity of intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) requires modification of the standard physical and dosimetric methods used in external electron beam therapy. At the Radiotherapy Department of Ospedale S. Chiara in Trento a number of technical innovations have been developed, including an electron beam applicators system and related devices. Ionometric and film dosimetry have been used to obtain relative dose distributions of clinical electron beams in phantoms.
