Abstract

The progress of the EUROMET project on the metrology of 192Ir brachytherapy sources is reported. Four laboratories (CBNM, NPL, RIVM and RUG) have standardised the air kerma rate of 192Ir wires and the activity of two 192Ir solutions. The decay scheme of 192Ir has been studied and first concepts of a scanning device for 192Ir wires have been developed.
