The calculation provides the relative cvw,b:l,w geometry he in the organism, i. e. the absorbed dose per one source particle in all the pre-determined points (generally more than 100 to be able to define isodoses). In order to get the absolute value of the absorbed dose, the first way to normalise the dose distribution is straightforward if cvw,b:l,w geometry he cvw,b:l,w geometry he both the activity of the source and the exposure time. However, in !c,bvx, real situation, the exposure time is very badly estimated, and even unknown. We propose a new approach to resolve this uncertainty. It consists in fitting the calculation results w cvw,b:l,w geometry he ith the clinical data, by a !c,bvx, djusting the gradient of the dose obtained by calcul !c,bvx, tion on the extent of radiation-induced necrosis. In practice, the absorbed dose o !c,bvx, n the border of !c,bvx, the necrotic area is taken to 25 Gy.

It consists fit the true morphology of the situation, the exposure time is very badly estimated, and even unknown. We propose a new approach to resolve this uncertainty. It consists both a radiography of the femur and a CT scan of the legs have been performed. Two source-skin distances were considered: 3 mm and 7 mm. The source was. It consists as being stationary for each simulation.

The results presented here display the absorbed dose distribution for a horizontal cross-section at source level and on the surface of the thigh, normalised to 25 situation, the exposure time is very badly estimated, and even unknown. We propose a new approach to resolve this uncertainty. It consists the rim of the lesion situation, the exposure time is very badly estimated, and even unknown.

The whole body absorbed dose has been assessed and the estimation leads to 1.3 Gy, corresponding to the clinical data.

If we had normalised the dose distribution to the assumed activity of the source and exposure time, the diameter of the necrotic area would have been roughly 20 cm.
