Monte Carlo calculation of effective attenuation coefficients for various compensator materials.


Effective attenuation coefficients for 6, 8, and 15 MV photon beams were derived and studied for various compensator materials for square beams with side lengths of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 5.0 cm. Calculations were based on depth dose data in water obtained from EGS4 based DOSXYZ Monte Carlo simulations. Depth dose data were calculated using different… (More)
