Beam Adjustments for Unflattened X-ray Beam Modes for an Elekta Synergy Linear Accelerator

Blad, Börje LU and Dalaryd, Mårten LU (2012) 5th European Conference of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering In IFMBE Proceedings 37. p.683-685
Abstract
A flattening filter free x-ray beam mode was added to an Elekta linear accelerator by placing a flat copper plate in the filter carousel and recalibrating the electron steering servo, gun servo and dosimetry system. Machine configurations were saved onto a separate hard disk in order to remain separate from the clinical configuration. Profile measurements with a Schuster BMS diode array show that the beam is stable and start up performance is similar to the normal filtered beam.
