Dataset for Beam Commissioning of the Vero4DRT System
Abstract: We present the results of measurements made using the Vero4DRT radiation therapy system, which is not yet widely used, to assist technicians in achieving reliable and safe radiotherapy to the patient. We measured percent depth dose, beam profile, and relative scatter factor under water and air conditions. The Vero4DRT system has a 150 × 150-mm fixed secondary collimator. Its multileaf collimator (MLC) design is a single-focus type, with 30 pairs of 5 mm thick leaves at the isocenter, and produces a maximum field size of 150 × 150 mm. Profile measurements were performed using a 0.016-cm3 ionization chamber (PTW31016 pinpoint chamber; PTW, Freiburg GmbH Germany). A brass build-up cap was used for measurements obtained in air conditions. We present a useful measurement dataset for users of the Vero4DRT system.
