Abstract

A set of data to compare the absorbed dose delivered by tomographic implant site assessment techniques was generated. Absorbed doses were measured in fourteen anatomic sites from (1) computed tomography scans and (2) a series of tomographic cuts performed on a linear tomography unit. The doses to the thyroid gland, the active bone marrow, the brain, the salivary glands, and the eyes were determined with the use of a tissue-equivalent phantom with lithium fluoride thermoluminescent dosimeters at the appropriate locations.
