PURPOSE To determine detector-specific output correction factors,[Formula: see text], in 6 MV small photon beams for air and liquid ionization chambers, silicon diodes, and diamond detectors from two manufacturers. METHODS Field output factors, defined according to the international formalism published byAlfonso et al. [Med. Phys. 35, 5179-5186 (2008)], relate the dosimetry of small photon beams to that of the machine-specific reference field; they include a correction to measured ratios of… CONTINUE READING
