Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each one, respectively. In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. An errata file for the printed version is also available here: 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.

In the case of N D,w,Qfor all plane parallel chambers, the differences are less than 0. Publication Year Publication Year. Get permanent URL for this record. Javascript must be enabled for narrowing. In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol. The final draft of TRS can be downloaded from here as a compressed file pdf-zip. 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.

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. A link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page. Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less than 0. Related Record Related Record.

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. This new Code of Practice based on standards of absorbed dose to water has been developed for the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams when ionization chambers calibrated using these standards are available.

Tsr 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 quality for electrons beams were estimated by means of the Dmax, R80, R50 and Rp.

In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors.
