ae Comparison of differential DVHs obtained in the cylindrical insert using the three voxel-based dose algorithms. (I) Full Monte Carlo calculations with Raydose, (II) LD algorithm, and (III) convolution approach using Philips Stratos. Results are presented in terms of dvi/dD, i.e., absolute volume element (dvi) receiving dose in the corresponding dose bin (dD). The integral under each differential DVH yields the insert volume (nominal volume 19.13 mL). VOI contouring performed using methods I and II provided a volume of 19.60 mL (+ 2.45%), while insert contouring performed with Philips Stratos resulted in a volume of 19.21 mL (+0.42%). The quantity A avg represents the average insert activity concentration assessed from image-based evaluations. Real activity concentrations, measured using the available dose calibrator, are reported in Table 2
