Results show a typical uncertainty in the determination of absorbed dose to water during beam calibration of approximately % for photon beams and % for electron beams (k=1 in. A computer program has been developed to facilitate the calculation of the absorbed dose in photon and electron beams from measurements with an ionization chamber in a phantom.

The generalized Bragg-Gray theory, introduced in the latest recommendations of the Nordic Association of Clinical Physics (NACP), is used throughout the code, including Cited by: 2. The absorbed dose to water in high-energy photon and electron beams is determined as [Dw] Q = [ΔA]Q Nw FQ (2) where the subscript Q refers to the beam quality and FQ is a correction factor taking into account the energy dependence of the calibration coefficient.

IAEA Radiation Oncology Physics: A Handbook for Teachers and Students - Slide 5 INTRODUCTION Basic output calibration for photon and electron beams is carried out with: • Radiation dosimeters • Special dosimetry techniques. Radiation dosimetry refers to a determination by measurement and/or calculation of: • Absorbed dose or • Some other.

General shape of the depth dose curve Electron beams are almost monoenergetic as they leave the linac accelerating waveguide. In moving toward the patient through: • Waveguide exit window • Scattering foils • Transmission ionization chamber • Air and interacting with photon collimators, electron cones.

The determination of the absorbed dose at a specified location in a medium irradiated with an electron or photon beam normally consists of two steps: (1) the determination of the mean absorbed dose to a detector by using a calibration factor or performing an absolute measurement, (2) the determination of the absorbed dose to the medium at the point of interest by Cited by: 6.
