Rectal Cancer Medical Physics

Beam characteristics are readily optimised for each application and of course the use of low energies minimises radiation protection requirements.

Classic Papillon depth dose curve (≥50% dose at 5mm)

Beam uniformity on a planar surface with the aid of a flattening filter.

50 kVp 0.5-0.8mm mm Al. HVL.

Applicators from 20 – 30 mm diameter are available.
