      The number of centres performing IVD in IMRT and VMAT cases is low compared with other photon delivery methods. No centre appears to be using only diodes for VMAT verification. A small but significant number of centres used IVD for electron beam treatments, a modality for which EPID panels do not offer an IVD solution at this time. Skin Sparing. MV photons do not reach maximum dose at the surface/skin but build-up to a maximum dose. This effect is referred to as skin sparing and is desirable for most photon treatments.. Depth of Maximum Dose (d max). The depth of maximum dose is closely connected to photon energy but also source-to-surface distance, field size and beam profile. The central part of the PTV was treated with one MeV electron beam, and the other parts of the PTV with two MeV electron beams. An additional field with 8-MV x rays covering the same volume improves skin sparing. Note that the patient is not moved because the multi-leaf collimator is used for both the photon and the electron beams.

IAEA Review of Radiation Oncology Physics: • Results of dose calculations are frequently linked to beam-time or monitor unit (MU) calculations. Abstract. Dose calculation methods for photon beams are reviewed in the context of radiation therapy treatment planning.

Following introductory summaries on photon beam characteristics and clinical requirements on dose calculations, calculation methods are described in order of increasing explicitness of particle transport.

Khan “Monitor unit calculations for external photon and electron beams: Report of the AAPM Therapy Physics Committee Task Group No. 71’ Med. Phys. 41 (). The evaluation of dose calculation algorithms for radiotherapy treatment planning systems (TPSs) in external photon beam therapy is usually based on a number of measurements performed in simple geometries such as slabs of various density and/or composition.

According to the technical report by IAEA, these actions of verification can be divided. OAF is the off axis factor, taken to be 1 if calculation is made along the central axis. Electron Monitor Unit Calculations \begin{equation} \textrm{MU} = \frac{Rx}{O \times PDD \times AF \times CF \times TT \times ISC } \end{equation} MU are the number of monitor units to be delivered.

Rx is the prescription dose at the depth of interest (cGy).

To investigate the problem, a number of clinical plans as well as test plans were created and calculated in both systems, with the resultant monitor units compared. MU = Monitor Unit. K field size, shape etc., we will need more or less beam to deliver the same dose.
