International Atomic Energy Agency. Uaea must be enabled for narrowing. Evaluation of codes of practice: The calibration is performed in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw. Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each one, respectively.
Mexico ; Mar 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.

In the case of N D,w,Qfor all plane parallel chambers, the differences are less than 0. 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.
It is determined by two different protocols: Results 1 – 1 of 1. Calibration of ionization tr 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 frs.
In this case, chamber dependent conversion factors are required to determine absorbed dose to water. 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.

Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less 27 0. Results 1 – 1 of 1. Get permanent URL for this record. Two water phantoms have been used, one by NE including a waterproof sleeve for cylindrical ionization chambers with thickness about 0. High Energy Photons and Electron Beams.
In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol. Publication Year Publication Year.
