PURPOSE To compare the dosimetric accuracy of advanced dose calculation algorithms for flattened (FF) and unflattened (FFF) photon beams. MATERIAL AND METHODS We compared the enhanced collapsed cone (eCC) algorithm implemented in OncentraMasterplan and the XVMC (MC) code in Monaco. Test plans were created for 10MV FF and FFF beams. Single beam tests were delivered to radiochromic films positioned within a solid water phantom and evaluated with 1D γ-index analysis. Conformal plans were… CONTINUE READING
