The IAEA assumes no responsibility for user-calculated results, or for the impact of such upon dose determination. The results thus show that neither the chamber-to-chamber variations, nor the obtained absolute dose values are significantly altered by changing from air kerma based dosimetry to absorbed dose based dosimetry when using calibration factors obtained from iiaea Laboratory for Standard Dosimetry, Ghent, Belgium.

Many standard laboratories already provide calibrations at the radiation quality of 60 Co gamma-rays. Measurements were performed in three clinical electron beam energies using two NEtype cylindrical chambers, two Markus-type plane-parallel chambers and two NACPtype plane-parallel chambers.

The development of primary standards of absorbed dose to water for high-energy photons and electrons offers the possibility of reducing the uncertainty in the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams. Hugo Palmans et al Phys. An errata file for the printed version is also available here: The results thus show that neither the chamber-to-chamber variations, nor the obtained absolute dose values are significantly altered by changing from air kerma based dosimetry to absorbed dose based dosimetry when using calibration factors obtained from the Laboratory for Standard Dosimetry, Ghent, Belgium.

In creating this software, every effort has been made to create conditions that minimize input errors. New codes of practice for reference dosimetry in clinical high-energy photon and electron beams have been published recently, to replace the air kerma based codes of practice that have determined the dosimetry of these beams for the past twenty years. International Atomic Energy Agency. The values of the 60Co perturbation factor for plane-parallel chambers k att x k m for the air kerma based and p wall for the absorbed based codes of practice that are obtained from comparing the results based on 60Co calibrations and cross-calibrations are within the experimental uncertainties in agreement with the results from other investigators.

Dosimetry based on direct calibrations of all chambers in 60 Co was investigated, as well as dosimetry based on cross-calibrations of plane-parallel chambers against a cylindrical chamber in a high-energy electron beam. This new Code of Practice based on standards of absorbed dose to water has been developed for the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams when ionization chambers calibrated using these standards are available. Dosimetry based on direct calibrations of all chambers in 60Co was investigated, as well as dosimetry based on cross-calibrations of plane-parallel chambers against a cylindrical chamber in a high-energy electron beam.

Furthermore, 60 Co perturbation factors for plane-parallel chambers were derived. The results thus show that neither the chamber-to-chamber variations, nor the obtained absolute dose values are significantly altered by changing from air kerma based dosimetry to absorbed dose based dosimetry when using iaes factors obtained from the Laboratory for Standard Dosimetry, Ghent, Belgium.

Phys Med Biol. Protocols for the dosimetry of high-energy photon and electron beams: a comparison of the IAEA TRS and previous international codes of practice. International Atomic Energy Agency. It is based on standards of absorbed dose to water, whereas previous protocols TRS and TRS were based on air kerma standards. To estimate the changes in beam calibration caused by the introduction of TRS, a detailed experimental comparison of the dose determination in reference conditions in high-energy photon and electron beams has been made using the different IAEA protocols. A summary of the formulation and reference conditions in the various Codes of Practice, as well as of their basic data, is presented first.
