The implementation of protocols based on absorbed dose to water standards requires beam quality conversion factors, k(Q). Calculated values of k(Q) are available for ionization chambers used for reference dosimetry. Ideally, k(Q) should be experimentally determined at the same beam qualities as that of the user. In this work we measure k(Q) factors in… CONTINUE READING
