Dose response of selected ion chambers in applied homogeneous transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields.

Abstract

PURPOSE The magnetic fields of an integrated MR-Linac system will alter the paths of electrons that produce ions in the ionization chambers. The dose response of selected ion chambers is evaluated in the presence of varying transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields. The investigation is useful in calibration of therapeutic x-ray beams associated with MR… (More)
