Abstract

The second comparison of measurements of 192Ir brachytherapy sources has been completed and the results show an overall improvement when compared with the results of the previous comparison. Hairpins were included in this exercise and these results, too, indicate a resonable level of performance.
As in the previous exercise there are still some areas of concern: the reporting of uncertainty budgets; the in-house determination of calibration figures; the realisation that calibration figures are only applicable to a specific measurement geometry; the need for calibration checks to be carried out on all chambers.
