The rapid increase in oncology centers providing high dose rate brachytherapy treatments has prompted an intense interest in calibration procedures for high dose rate Iridium-192 sources. Calibration of sources is necessary because some sources are delivered with ±10% specifications. One facilitys experience has shown a variation of 15% in sources.Calibration with Farmer-type ion chambers requires a very time-consuming procedure of 1 to 2 hours. For proper calibration, the jig and Farmer method requires multiple distance measurements which must be accurate to less than 1mm. Scatter is produced by the jig apparatus which must be accounted for.
