Abstract
Radiochromic film, polymer gel and radiochromic plastic are three different kinds of dosimeters developed for radiation therapy and suitable for optical readout. In this study, different optical CT scanners are used to scan the dosimeters to find out if they could be used as multi-purpose scanners, i.e. for readout of the different kinds of dosimeters. Promising results are found but further development needs to be done before any of the scanners could be categorized as multi-purpose scanners.
