The retina is resistant to damage when low doses of radiation are given in divided fractions.[8] Proliferating endothelial cells are suppressed and migrating macrophages (key components in the proliferation process) are inhibited by the presence of radiation.[1] In one study, low-dose radiation treatments were tested on 19 patients.[2] Doses of 14 to 15 Gy to the 90% isodose curve were given over a period of 10 fractions.
The isodose curves in % of the gamma dose rate distribution using MATLAB in the GB-127 source are presented in Figure 5.
Approximately pear shape isodose curves were obtained for both applicators.
