PTW 60016 Dosimetry Diode P - Photons.

The Dosimetry Diode P has been designed for dose measurements in small photon fields as encountered in IORT, IMRT and stereotactic beams.  Its excellent spatial resolution allows for very precise beam profile measurements even in the penumbra region of small fields.  Due to its superior energy response accurate percentage depth dose (PDD) measurements can be performed which are field size independent up to field sizes of 40 x 40 cm.  The waterproof diode detector can be used in air, solid state phantoms and in water.

• Waterproof, disk-shaped silicon diode detector with sensitive volume of only 0.03 mm³

• Useful for measurements in small and large photon fields

• Excellent spatial resolution

• Minimized energy response for field size independent measurements up to 40 cm x 40 cm

The 30016 chamber is used for absolute dose measurements in radiation therapy in cases where the high volume of the 30015 chamber is not needed and a higher spatial resolution is needed.  Correction factors needed to determine absorbed dose to water or air kerma are published in the pertinent dosimetry protocols.  The acrylic chamber wall ensures the ruggedness of the chamber.  The chamber is designed for the use in solid state phantoms and is therefore not waterproof.
