Effect of beam blocking on linac head scatter factors.


PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the influence of beam blocking on head scatter within the context of a two-component x-ray source model. METHODS AND MATERIALS Head scatter factors were measured for open rectangular fields defined by X and Y jaws and for fields blocked by a multileaf collimator (MLC) for a 6-MV photon beam from a Varian 2300CD… (More)
