The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of constant dose rate and constant angular spacing intensity-modulated arc therapy (CDR-CAS-IMAT) with conventional linacs for postoperative patients with cervical cancer.
In Table 2, the calculated values of absorbed dose rate, radium equivalent activity, the external hazard index and annual effective dose equivalent were found to be higher for smaller grain sizes except for sample XI74, where the absorbed dose rate, radium equivalent activity and annual effective dose equivalent were slightly higher for grain sizes <2 mm and >1 mm, compared to grain size <1 mm and >0.
