Polymer gel dosimeters are a kind of radiation dosimeter used in medical radiation treatments that are capable of directly assessing the special effects of contrast agents or metallic radiation dose enhancers, such as iodine and AgNPs within the dosimeter.
Twenty-five dosimeters were irradiated with 2 Gy, and the measured amplitude of the ESR signal had a 5% deviation, with a good agreement within the given relative combined standard uncertainty and within the accepted tolerance for planning doses for the whole procedure of dosimeter production, positioning during irradiation, and spectrum recording of radiotherapy (18).
