Brachytherapy is an area of radiation therapy where the availability of high-resolution detectors with a low energy-dependence is of great importance. The suitability of two detectors is investigated in this study. Measurements in the proximity of an Ir-192 source were performed with a diamond detector type 60003 and a pinpoint chamber type 31006 (both PTW-Freiburg). For comparison, dose values were calculated with the dose calculation formalism recommended by the task group 43 (Nath et al 1995 Med. Phys. 22 209-34).
