Empirical equations for the representation of depth dose data for computerized treatment planning.

Abstract

Equations of the form (see article) have been used to represent the variation of central axis percentage depth dose P or tissue-air ratio (TAR) with depth d below the dose maximum. The equations were originally developed for the representation of cobalt 60 depth dose data but have also been fitted to the central axis depth dose data published in the British… (More)
