PURPOSE The applicability of various detectors for small field dosimetry and whether there are differences in the detector response when irradiated with FF- and FFF-beams was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Output factors of 6 and 10 MV FF- and FFF-beams were measured with 14 different online detectors using field sizes between 10 × 10 and 0.6 × 0.6 cm(2) at a depth of 5 cm of water in isocentric conditions. Alanine pellets with a diameter of 5 and 2.5mm were used as reference dosimeters… CONTINUE READING
