In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol. The calibration is performed in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw. International Atomic Energy Agency. These factors do not account differences between individual chambers of a particular type. In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors.

In the case of photon beams, the TPR was measured for 6 and 15 MV, also the profiles were determined in order to verify the flatness and symmetry of the beam: Finally, a link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page.

It is determined by two different protocols: Furthermore, users can download the most final version of the Code of Practice to date, with corrections and updates inserted, from here. This software is provided for the convenience of the user in calculating kaea for external beam radiotherapy. Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each rrs, respectively.


The results obtained for the absorbed dose quotients D W,Q d max are: 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 linear accelerators Clinac C Varianwith electron beams of nominal energies between iaaea and 20 MeV, corresponding to R 50 from 2. Close Go to Workspace.

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.

The energy parameters characterizing the electron and photon beams have been iea from measured depth dose distributions carried out by a plane parallel ionization chamber NACP. Related Record Related Record. Results 27 – 1 of 1. Publication Year Publication Year.

Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less than 0. Corrections since CoP publ Please provide a name for this query: Reference Number Reference Number.

In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. The final draft of TRS can be downloaded from here as a compressed file pdf-zip. 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. Mexico ; Mar Please provide a name for this query: A link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page.

High Energy Photons iae Electron Beams. Many standard laboratories already provide calibrations at the radiation quality of 60 Iaeaa gamma-rays.

Two water phantoms ieaa been used, one by NE including a waterproof sleeve for cylindrical ionization chambers with thickness about 0. 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.
