Patient Specific QA for External Beam Radiotherapy Using the HYPERSCINT Plastic Scintillation Detector

Plastic scintillation detectors (PSDs) have interesting dosimetric properties, including small size and energy independence. These advantages make them well suited for VMAT patient-specific QA, either alone or in conjunction with a detector matrix. This work aims to determine if the HYPERSCINT scintillation dosimetry research platform (Medscint inc., Quebec city, Canada) can replace the classic ion chamber in a clinical patient-specific QA workflow.
