    Ionization chamber dosimetry in high energy photon beams is generally simpler than in electron beams due to the smaller beam quality dependence of the stopping pow- er ratio. Over the clinically useful depth interval the stop- ping power ratio varies only about 5 per cent in 2 to 25 MV photon beams whereas it varies about 15 per cent in 2. protocol for the calibration of high-energy photon and electron beams used in radiation therapy. The formalism and the dosimetry procedures recommended in this protocol are based on the use of an ionization chamber calibrated in terms of absorbed dose-to-water in a standards laboratory’s reference quality 60Co gamma ray beam. This is.

    dosimetry of high-energy photon and electron beams, Med. Phys. 26, pp, standards laboratories have developed standards for absorbed dose to water in photon beams from 60Co and accelerator beams and these have an uncertainty of 1% or less. 2.   It is now recommended that clinical reference dosimetry be based on standards of absorbed dose to water. Newer protocols for the dosimetry of radiotherapy beams, based on the use of an ionization chamber calibrated in terms of absorbed dose to water, N(D,w), in a standards laboratory's reference quality beam, have been published by several national or regional scientific societies and .

sorbed dose to water, the Fricke method requires data about the variation with photon beam quality of G, the radiation chemical yield, and these data are based on an absorbed dose to water standard.

Similarly the ionization method requires a value of (W=e)sgr;air which is predominantly based on measurements made with a graphite calorimeter. To measure absorbed dose to water, the Fricke method requires data about the variation with photon beam quality of G, the radiation chemical yield, and these data are based on an absorbed dose to water by: 3.

BOOK REVIEW: ICRU Report Dosimetry of High-Energy Photon Beams Based on Standards of Absorbed Dose to Water. The ICRU has published a report entitled Dosimetry of High-Energy Photon Beams based on Standards of Absorbed Dose to Water in Journal of the ICRU, 1 () 1.

I have been asked to review it for Physics in Medicine and Biology and I have such extensive comments on the report that I am presenting them here in detail, in addition. A new international Code of Practice for radiotherapy dosimetry co-sponsored by several international organizations has been published by the IAEA, TRS 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. The development of primary standards of absorbed dose to water for high energy photon and electron beams, and improvements in radiation dosimetry concepts, offer the possibility of reducing the uncertainty in the dosimetry of radio-therapy beams.

The dosimetry of kilovoltage X rays, as well as that of proton and. of absorbed dose to water in megavoltage photon and elec-tron beams was published in In replacing the previous exposure based protocol [TG (Ref. 2)] it adopted the k Q formalism3 whereby linac calibrations were based on a 60Co absorbed dose to water calibration coefficient, traceable to a primary standard, and calculated k Q factors were used to con.

In NCS report 18 a Code of Practice is presented for the dosimetry in high energy photon and electron beams based on absorbed dose to water standards for 60 Co reference beams. AAPM’s TG protocol for clinical reference dosimetry of high-energy photon and electron beams Peter R.

The absorbed‐dose to water and exposure or air‐kerma calibration factors are based on standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

In contrast, the absorbed‐dose to water determined with TRS‐ is in good agreement with TG‐51 within about % for photon and electron beams. 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.

Many standard laboratories already provide calibrations at the radiation quality of 60 Co gamma-rays. Based on Standards of Absorbed Dose to Water (Technical Reports Series No.

) and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) publication titled AAPM’s TG Protocol for Clinical Reference Dosimetry of High-Energy Photon and Electron Beams.

However, recent developments in radiotherapy have resulted in an upsurge in the use of. An International Code of Practice for Dosimetry Based on Standards of Absorbed Dose to Water. It provides a methodology for the determination of absorbed dose to water in the low, medium and high energy photon beams, photon beams, proton beams and heavy ion beams.

The IAEA Dosimetry Laboratory (DOL) aims to improve the accuracy of clinical dosimetry in hospitals world-wide by providing independent remote audits for high energy photon beams. A thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD) system has been used by the DOL to provide audit services for over 47 years.

During the last two decades, absorbed dose to water in clinical photon and electron beams was determined using dosimetry protocols and codes of practice based on radiation metrology standards of air kerma. It is now recommended that clinical reference dosimetry be based on standards of. electron beams based on the concept of absorbed dose to water.

Furthermore it introduces the basic formalism for dose determination and the concept of the beam quality correction factor. Chapter 2 and 3 contain the Codes of Practice for the dosimetry in respectively high energy photon and electron beams generated by medical linear accelerators.

IAEA Technical Report Series No. IAEA, Vienna ; v. The determination of the absorbed dose to water for high-energy photon and electron beams is performed in Germany according to the German dosimetry protocol DIN ().

This protocol is based on the use of ionization chambers calibrated in terms of absorbed dose to water in a cobalt gamma radiation beam.Special attention is paid to the issue of specifying beam quality in terms of percentage depth-dose at 10 cm for photon beams and R50 for electron beams.

A proposal for using a reference depth of R50 − cm in electron beam dosimetry is discussed. Factors needed for using plane-parallel chambers in a water phantom are also reviewed.
