RADIATION PROTECTION OF LINAC BUNKERS. A USER-FRIENDLY APPROACH

Thyge Holten Sørensen, Kjeld Jørgen Olsen, Claus Flensted Behrens

Abstract

A well-known but complex formalism for the calculation of the leakage dose at the entrance of the linac maze was considered and simplified. These simplifications were based partly on the literature and partly on the authors' own measurements. The authors have included photon scatter originating from the irradiated patient in the formalism. A formalism for two different types of bunkers was developed, and the authors have obtained simple formulas to calculate the dose at the maze entrance for both bunker types.
