The TLD-100 readout system was optimized for various radiotherapy beam doses using the Taguchi method. The radiotherapy beam was produced by a Varian 21EX linear accelerator (LINAC) at 6MV. The beam doses were 50, 100 and 150cGy, and the measured data in each group were averaged from three TLD-100 chips. A total of nine combinations of four parameters were arranged, in the manner suggested by Taguchi. The four parameters were defined as initial temperature, heating rate, preheat time and… CONTINUE READING
