Main authors: S. Guatelli, D. Cutajar, CMRP, University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia.

Short description: The test calculates the dose rate distribution g(r) of a Flexisource brachytherapy source. The results are compared to the reference data published in D. Granero, J. Pérez-Calatayud, E. Casal, et al, "A dosimetric study on the Ir-192 high dose rate Flexisource", Med. Phys. 33 (12), 2006, 4578-82.
