Abstract
The beam was successfully characterized in air and in phantom using various radiation dosimeter:,. The determination of the thermal neutron and photon components of the mixed beam in phantom can be determined with acceptable uncertainties, while the uncertainty of the high-energy neutron component is considerable but of limited clinical significance. The beam intensity is sufficiently high for reasonably short treatment times. A novel approach to in-vivo dosimetry and quality assurance of treatment time in terms of monitor units was introduced in order to comply with national regulations regarding radiation therapy.
