Catalogue of X-ray photon fluence spectra of electronic brachytherapy device Axxent manufactured by Xoft

  • 1. Czech Metrology Institute

Description

The catalogue was compiled from suitable data available in literature and from the data measured or created by the project "18NRM02 PRISM-eBT" (Primary standards and traceable measurement methods for X-ray emitting electronic brachytherapy devices; http://www.ebt-empir.eu/) of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR).

The main goal of the catalogue was to develop a set of harmonised reference X-ray qualities denoted as “eBT equivalent” that would be established for in-laboratory activities by the X-ray tubes usually available for calibration in calibration laboratories, but the tube voltage and the filter are specifically selected to simulate the energy spectrum of the corresponding eBT radiation as closely as possible at the reference point. 

The catalogue contains the following spectra:

1) X-ray spectrum for 50 kVp in 1 cm water depth obtained using Monte Carlo simulation.
2) eBT-equivalent spectrum in 1 cm water depth calculated from 1) with SpekPy software.
3) X-ray spectrum for 50 kVp in 1 cm water depth obtained using Monte Carlo simulation.
4) X-ray fluence spectrum in air laterally at 50 cm distance measured by NIST presented in graphical form only.
