A Method to Convert Absolute Depth-Dose Curves of Electrons between Different Phantom Materials
A method to convert absolute depth-dose curves of electron beams obtained in plastic phantoms to distributions in another phantom material is proposed. The procedure has been verified by using depth-dose distributions for plane-parallel beams calculated by the Monte Carlo method. Results better than other scaling methods have been obtained along the complete depth-dose curve for incident energies between 5 and 20 MeV.
