Results 1 – 1 of 1. International Atomic Energy Agency. The calibration is performed in terms of absorbed dose to water Dw. Mexican symposium on medical physics; Guanajuato, Gto. Standard Search Advanced Search. In photon beams, absorbed dose to water has been determined at the reference depth recommended in each protocol.

Two water phantoms have been used, one by NE including a waterproof sleeve for cylindrical ionization chambers with thickness about 0. An errata file for the iea version is also available here: In other hand, the use of protocol with a more simple formalism reduces the possibility of errors.

The quality for iaew beams were estimated by means of the Dmax, R80, R50 and Rp. International symposium on standards and codes of practice in medical radiation dosimetry. Results 1 – 1 of 1. Many standard laboratories already provide calibrations at the radiation quality of 60 Co gamma-rays.

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. These factors do not account differences between individual chambers of a iwea type. Iara is determined by two different protocols: 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.

The results obtained for the absorbed dose quotients D W,Q d max are: 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. Differences in the absorbed dose determined by the three protocols are less than 0.

Evaluation of codes of practice: IAEA TRS, TRS, TRS|INIS

Please provide a name for this query: 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. This software tts provided for the convenience of the user in calculating dosimetry for external beam radiotherapy. In the case of photon beams, the TPR was measured for 6 and 15 MV, also the profiles were determined in order tra verify the flatness and symmetry of the beam: Corrections since CoP publ In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors.
