Validation of Voxman Monte Carlo code and calibration for digital systems
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
The objective of this work was to test the Monte Carlo model ‘Voxman’ against measurements on x-ray systems in the clinic. X-ray transmission experiments are performed to test of the accuracy of the Monte Carlo photon transport. Experiments were also performed with an image plate (CR) system in the clinic to compare the measured pixel values with calculated pixel values. Measurements were also performed with the automatic exposure control (AEC) chambers used in Linköping and Motala. The purpose for those measurements was to choose a normalisation of the entrance surface dose.
