The quality for electrons beams were estimated by means of the Dmax, R80, R50 and Rp. In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol. A link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page. Javascript must be enabled for narrowing. Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are ixea than 0.

The results obtained for the absorbed dose quotients D W,Q d max are: Looks like Javascript is disabled on your browser. Evaluation of codes of practice: The isea parameters characterizing the electron and photon beams have been obtained from measured depth dose distributions carried out by a plane parallel ionization chamber NACP.

An errata file for the printed version is also iara here: Two independent dosimeters were used with two ionization chambers each one, respectively. High Energy Photons and Electron Beams.

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

In the case of N D,w,Qfor all plane parallel chambers, the differences are less than 0. The calibration is performed in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw. Close Go to Workspace.

International Atomic Energy Agency. Invalid entries can lead to computational errors. The development of primary standards of absorbed dose to water for high-energy photons and electrons offers the possibility 27 reducing the uncertainty in the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams.

Furthermore, users can download the most final version of the Code of Practice to date, with corrections and updates inserted, from here.

Results 1 – 1 of 1. 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 tes are available.

Citation Export Print Permalink Translate. In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors.


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

In this case, chamber dependent conversion factors are required to determine absorbed dose to water.

It is determined by two different protocols: Finally, a link to the worksheets is provided at the bottom of this page. Reference Number Reference Number. This software is provided for the convenience of the user in calculating dosimetry for external beam radiotherapy.

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