Abstract

This work describes a method to obtain "star-shots" of the mechanical and optical isocenters of linear accelerators, similar to the star-shots of radiation isocenters normally obtained using films. In this method a digital camera is connected to a personal computer so that multiply exposed images can be taken at a fixed camera position. A mechanical pointer… (More)
