Superflab Vs Play-Doh

Decent Essays
The authors explored the bolus properties of SuperFlab, Play-Doh, wet guaze and plastic water. They intended to compare the Dmax of each material against the known value for water. They mapped isodose curves for 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 MeV electron beams across a variety of thicknesses for each material, starting at 2mm thick. They established that SuperFlab and plastic water performed similarly, while Play-Doh and wet guaze caused significantly more attenuation. Because of these differences in dose distribution, the authors concluded that appropriate dose build up curves must be considered before switching to a new bolus
