AAPM protocol for 40-300 kV x-ray beam dosimetry in radiotherapy and radiobiology.


The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) presents a new protocol, developed by the Radiation Therapy Committee Task Group 61, for reference dosimetry of low- and medium-energy x rays for radiotherapy and radiobiology (40 kV < or = tube potential < or = 300 kV). It is based on ionization chambers calibrated in air in terms of air kerma. If… (More)
