Abstract

Our work shows measurments of depth dose function and beam profiles dependance on field's contour and size shaped by the multileaf collimator.

All measurements were done for linear accelerator Clinac 2300 – Varian. Such obtained values were compared with analogical ones for square fields. Dose distributions across the beam for multileaf collimator and for individual blocks were analized.

Work load needed for clinical dosimetry of multileaf collimator was estimated.

Proposols for measurment protocol in clinical dosimetry is shown.
