I was searching a lot and could only find dosages for curing cancer and allowed emission, but no Iridium 192 dose that could be given internally through brachy sources been found, lets say a 700 cGy dose needed by the patient while the source has the capacity of 10Ci. So what can ascertained as to the consumption of 1 source 10Ci into number patients requiring 700 cGy.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to the site! Your question could be stated more clearly. Are you asking for an equation describing how much of a source with activity 10 Ci should be consumed in a patient to deliver an absorbed dose of 700 cGy? Or are you asking for a reference to read more about it? It might also be helpful to more clearly state the circumstances of delivery. $\endgroup$ – Codename 47 Aug 2 at 9:42
  • $\begingroup$ I am asking an equation describing how much of a source with activity 10 Ci should be consumed in number of patients, each to deliver an absorbed dose of 700 cGy? And how long that source would decay if I needs to see a useful life of the source. $\endgroup$ – Sajjad Hussain Aug 3 at 10:05
  • $\begingroup$ I doubt you can calculate that without some measurements or MC simulations. At least, you could clearly explain the treatment procedure, so some can help. $\endgroup$ – jinawee Aug 6 at 11:17
