ABSTRACT
The quasi-conformation therapy was performed to get a homogeneous dose distributions for irregeular shaped tumor lesion by using the arc moving beam and beam modifying filer which was made by cerrobend alloy (p=9.4g/cc) metal. In our dose calcuation programme, it was fundmentally based on Clarkson's method to calcuate the irregular multi-step block field in rotation therapy. In this study, the expected relative depth doses under multipartial attenuator agree well with measured data at same plane. The results of comparison the dose computation with that of TLD measurement are very closed within +/-5% uncertainties in the irradiation to phantom with quasi-comformation method. And it has shown that irregular typed multi-step filter can be applied to quasi-conformation therapy in high energy radiation plannings.
Key Words: Irregular field, Multi-step filter, Quasi-conformation therapy
