PURPOSE To evaluate the uncertainties and characteristics of radiochromic film-based dosimetry system using the EBT3 model Gafchromic(®) film in therapy photon, electron and proton beams. MATERIAL AND METHODS EBT3 films were read using an EPSON Expression 10000XL/PRO scanner. They were irradiated in five beams, an Elekta SL25 6 MV and 18 MV photon beam, an IBA 100 MeV 5 × 5 cm(2) proton beam delivered by pencil-beam scanning, a 60 MeV fixed proton beam and an Elekta SL25 6 MeV electron beam… CONTINUE READING
