Abstract: 

Introduction
Low dose rate brachytherapy sources have been widely used for interstitial implants in tumor sites, particularly in prostate. Dosimetric characteristics of a new IrSeed 125I brachytherapy source have been determined using the LiF thermo luminescent dosimeter (TLD) chips.
Materials and Methods
Dose rate constant, radial dose function, and anisotropy function around the IrSeed 125I source were measured in a plexiglass phantom using TLD-100 chips. A plexiglass slab phantom with dimensions of 30
´30´7.3 cm3 was used to measure dose distribution around the source.
Results
Dose rate constant was measured to be equal to 0.965
±0.006 cGyh-1U-1. Radial dose function, anisotropy function, and geometry function have been presented as tabulated data for the IrSeed source. Conclusion
Basically, the dosimetric parameters presented here for this new IrSeed source have clinical and treatment planning applications.
