International Atomic Energy Agency. Dosimetry based on direct calibrations of all chambers in 60Co was investigated, as well as dosimetry based iaez cross-calibrations of plane-parallel chambers against a cylindrical chamber in a high-energy electron beam.

This software is provided for the convenience of the user in calculating dosimetry for external beam radiotherapy. The IAEA assumes no responsibility for user-calculated results, or for the impact of such upon dose determination. In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. Corrections since CoP publ The values of the 60 Co perturbation factor for plane-parallel chambers k att k m for the air kerma based and p wall for the absorbed dose based codes of practice that are obtained from comparing the results based on 60 Co calibrations and cross-calibrations are within the experimental uncertainties in agreement with the results from other investigators.

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. Furthermore, 60Co perturbation factors for plane-parallel chambers were derived.

It sets and advises on standards for the practice, education and training of scientists and engineers working in healthcare to secure an effective and appropriate workforce. Its members are professionals working in healthcare, education, industry and research.

Measurements were performed in three clinical electron beam energies using two NEtype cylindrical chambers, two Markus-type plane-parallel chambers and two NACPtype plane-parallel chambers. Some laboratories have extended calibrations to high-energy photon 3811 electron beams or are in the stage of developing the necessary techniques for these modalities.

The results thus show that neither the chamber-to-chamber variations, nor the obtained absolute dose values are significantly altered by changing from air kerma based dosimetry to absorbed dose based dosimetry when using calibration factors obtained from the Laboratory for Standard Dosimetry, Ghent, Belgium. Hugo Palmans et al Phys. The final draft of TRS can be downloaded from here as a compressed file pdf-zip.
