Please provide a name for this query: High Energy Photons and Electron Beams. A link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page. The IAEA assumes no responsibility for user-calculated results, or for the impact of such upon dose determination.
The measurements have been performed in two tra accelerators Clinac C Varianwith electron beams of nominal energies between 6 and 20 MeV, corresponding to R 50 from 2.
Results 1 – 1 of iawa. Reference Number Reference Number. Mexican symposium on medical physics; Guanajuato, Gto. Finally, a link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page. Calibration of ionization chambers in terms of absorbed dose to water, would reduce the uncertainty in determining the absorbed dose to water in radiotherapy beams versus calibration in air in terms of air kerma.

In photon beams, absorbed dose to oaea has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol. Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each one, respectively.
Beams that are generated by an accelerator Elekta Linac SL Furthermore, users can download the most final version of the Code of Practice to date, with corrections and updates inserted, from here.
Two water phantoms have been used, one by NE including a waterproof sleeve for cylindrical ionization chambers with thickness about 0. In other hand, iaeq use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors. It is determined by two different protocols: Related Record Related Record. The development of primary standards of absorbed dose to water for high-energy photons and electrons offers the possibility of reducing the uncertainty in the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams.
