Registered in England and Wales No. Later chapters consider specific components of the modern linear accelerator including systems for multileaf collimation, electronic portal imaging, dynamic wedging, record and verify, intensity modulation and stereotaxis.
We hope ipme report will aid their work. Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy.
To order a publication not available through the online shop please order directly using the publications order form. Many departments are looking to introduce these modalities, mainly because of their higher dose rates and potential ease of modelling in the treatment planning system.
IPEM also produces scientific reports, which contain consensus guidelines on a wide range of topics. The Report is a companion volume to IPEM Report 81 Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy and will be of particular interest to Radiotherapy Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists and Managers involved in the planning, acceptance testing and commissioning of the modern linear accelerator. PMB welcomes the opportunity to publish IPEM codes of practice and topical reports, subject to the usual rigorous peer-review process and given the global reach of the journal, the requirement that the international context is addressed.
These aim to address a specific area of current or developing practice, with rapid production times, to benefit the clinical physicist or engineer ‘at the coalface’.
