Scheme of the patient irradiation setup reproduced with authorization from Elsevier (Ref. 44).
Water tank for horizontal beams (PTW MP3-P 41029) used for dosimetry placed on the platform for the patient positioning system.
Scheme illustrating the dosimetry configuration. The ionization chamber is moved at constant speed through the synchrotron beam.
Correction factor, , for different beam qualities.
Measured dose rate and phantom scatter factors as a function of the field size. The normalization is done with respect to the reference field size of .
Output factors, , as a function of the field size. The second and third columns correspond to the experimental data and the results of the Monte Carlo simulations, respectively. A good agreement between both datasets is obtained.
Dose rate measured at 2 cm depth in a solid water (sw) phantom [Easy cube (Ref. 48)] as a function of the field size. The ratio between the dose rate measured in the solid water and water phantoms [ratio (sw/w)] is shown in the third column.
