In this study, to find the optimal composition of the gel as therapeutic radiation, the amounts of methacrylic acid and gelatin were varied. The polymer gel with various compositions were evaluated for its sensitivity, reproducibility, and accuracy. As the concentration of the gelatine is high, the threshold R2 value increases and the dose response was decreases. As the concentration of the methacrylic acid is high, both the threshold R2 value and the dose response were decrease. As both concentrations of the gelatine and the methacrylic acid is high, the sensitivity to the dose was increases within some range. It was found that the polymer gel composed in this study can be optimized for measuring the therapeutic radiation.
