In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors. The quality for electrons beams were estimated by means of the Dmax, R80, Kaea and Rp. In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol.

These factors do not account differences between individual chambers of iqea particular type. Close Go to Workspace. Finally, a link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page.

Two water phantoms have been used, one by NE including a waterproof sleeve for cylindrical ionization chambers with thickness about 0. Citation Export Print Permalink Translate. In the case of photon beams, the TPR ieaa measured for 6 and 15 MV, also the profiles were determined in order to verify the flatness and symmetry of the beam: This software is provided for the convenience of the user in calculating dosimetry for external beam radiotherapy.

Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each one, respectively. Publication Year Publication Year. Some laboratories have extended calibrations to high-energy photon and electron beams or are in the stage of developing the necessary techniques for these modalities. Evaluation of codes of practice: Please provide a name for this query: Reference Number Reference Grs.

The measurements have been performed in two linear accelerators Clinac C Varianwith electron beams of nominal energies between 6 and 20 MeV, corresponding to R 50 from 2.

The energy parameters characterizing the electron and photon beams have been obtained from measured depth dose distributions carried out by a plane parallel ionization chamber NACP. Corrections since CoP publ Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less than 0. Many standard laboratories already provide calibrations at the radiation quality of 60 Co gamma-rays. Please provide a name for this query: Looks like Javascript is disabled on your browser.


The IAEA assumes no responsibility for user-calculated results, or for the impact of such upon dose determination.

In the case of N D,w,Qfor all plane parallel chambers, the differences are less than 0. Results 1 – 1 of 1. High Energy Photons and Electron Beams. Reference Number Reference Number.
