Abstract

The authors discuss the possible use of point detectors for the determination of source movements in the Stockholm method of intracavitary therapy. It was demonstrated that the displacement of the source may be seen from the reading of only two point detectors. The average position of the source can be assessed from the dose determined at two points if an appropriate correction term is used.
