DescriptionSample Chapter 10, Limits of Precision and Accuracy of Radiation Delivery Systems. [pdf format]
This text was developed for the AAPM’s 2011 summer school in Burnaby, British Columbia. The focus of the summer school was to (a) understand the potential sources of dosimetric uncertainties in radiotherapy, (b) evaluate the impact of these uncertainties on the accuracy and conformity of dose delivered to patients, (c) understand strategies for mitigating these uncertainties, and (d) understand the impact of these uncertainties on QA/QM.
This book includes a CD where many of the book’s figures are presented in color. In addition, the CD includes three short .mp4 movies showing how fluence profiles change under varying input parameters.
This book is also available as an eBook, ISBN #9781936366538
