Monte Carlo modeling of a 4 mm conical collimator for a Novalis Tx Linear Accelerator
Morales, Johnny, Crowe, Scott, & Trapp, Jamie (2012) Monte Carlo modeling of a 4 mm conical collimator for a Novalis Tx Linear Accelerator. In EWGMCTP - Third European Workshop on Monte Carlo Treatment Planning, 15-18 May 2012, Seville, Spain.
The work presented in this poster outlines the steps taken to model a 4 mm conical collimator (BrainLab, Germany) on a Novalis Tx linear accelerator (Varian, Palo Alto, USA) capable of producing a 6MV photon beam for treatment of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) patients. The verification of this model was performed by measurements in liquid water and in virtual water. The measurements involved scanning depth dose and profiles in a water tank plus measurement of output factors in virtual water using Gafchromic® EBT3 film.
