Water Equivalent Mini PhantomModel 670 & 670S
Permits precise evaluation of scatter
The Water Equivalent Mini Phantom for Radiotherapy eliminates scatter radiation and X-ray beam electron contamination during the ion chamber measurements at a reference depth of 10 cm. Phantom material is Plastic Water® and precise machining improves the dosimetric accuracy and reliability of LINAC beam MU calibrations.
The Phantom satisfies the requirements of ESTRO Booklet 3 “Monitor unit calculation for high energy photon beams” for Output, Volume-Scatter and Scatter-Primary Ratio measurements.
The Model 670 provides an excellent tissue simulation and opportunity of true dose comparison with the 30 x 30 cm Plastic Water® slab phantom. *By positioning the ion chamber at a reference depth of 10 cm, the Mini Phantom allows the physicist to isolate and investigate the influence of scatter radiation on a reference dose measured in a slab phantom. The Model 670-S Mini-Phantom stand allows for vertical or horizontal positioning of a 0.6cc Farmer and smaller diameter chambers. Precise three axis rotation improves measurement accuracy.
*NOTE: This product or an optional accessory of this product requires a CIRS dosimetry cavity code before an order can be placed. Please refer to the Dosimetry Cavity Codes document to identify the CIRS code for the probe you intend to use with this product.
