AbstractThe purpose of this study is to obtain the dosimetric parameters of a new Co-60 source used in high dose rate brachytherapy and manufactured by BEBIG (Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG GmbH, Germany). The Monte Carlo method has been used to obtain the dose rate distribution in the updated TG-43UI formalism of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine. In addition, to aid the quality control process on treatment planning systems (TPS), a two-dimensional rectangular dose rate table, coherent with the TG-43UI dose calculation formalism, is given. These dosimetric data sets can be used as input data of the TPS calculations and to validate them.
