Out‐of‐field doses and neutron dose equivalents for electron beams from modern Varian and Elekta linear accelerators

Abstract

Out-of-field doses from radiotherapy can cause harmful side effects or eventually lead to secondary cancers. Scattered doses outside the applicator field, neutron source strength values, and neutron dose equivalents have not been broadly investigated for high-energy electron beams. To better understand the extent of these exposures, we measured out-of-field… (More)
