Abstract

Aim: Exact knowledge of dosimetric parameters is an essential pre-requisite of an effective treatment in radiotherapy. In order to fulfill this consideration, different techniques have been used, one of which is Monte Carlo simulation. Materials and methods: This study used the MCNP-4C. bbMonte Carlo N-Particle Transport Code - Version 4C. to simulate electron beams from Neptun 10 PC medical linear accelerator. Output factors for 6, 8 and 10. MeV electrons applied to eleven different conventional fields were both measured and calculated. Results: The measurements were carried out by a Wellhofler-Scanditronix dose scanning system. Our findings revealed that output factors acquired by MCNP-4C simulation and the corresponding values obtained by direct measurements are in a very good agreement. Conclusion: In general, very good consistency of simulated and measured results is a good proof that the goal of this work has been accomplished. © 2012 Greater Poland Cancer Centre, Poland.
