Abstract
Fletcher'Suit applicator was designed with specific
purpose for the treatment of carcinoma of the uterine
cervix and has been widely used for the intracavitary
radiation.
In many instances. calculation of dosage distributions
about intracavitary applicator doses not require
corrections for radiation by applicator.
However. in the case of the Fletcher-Suit applicator
loaded with cesium in place of radium tubes. correction
should be made for absorption by the applicator.
So the measurements of transmission ratios has
made in polystyrene phantom using PC•12 Computer
densitometer.
The results show that there is a 10%~30% reduction
dose to the region of the hladder trigone and
anterior rectum
