Abstract

An extension tailored to dose data processing and analysis has been developed in the open source imaging application 3D Slicer to aid in routine clinical use of gel dosimetry. This extension allows for registration, calibration, and comparison of 3D gel dosimeter data (imaged using an optical CT scanner) to treatment planning data. In this work, we present the accuracy and reproducibility of the gel dosimeter calibration component of the 3D Slicer extension. We examine the consistency of the calibration curves for a range of electron beam irradiations, and the inter-user variability of the gel dosimeter calibration process.
