Abstract

Monte Carlo methods are used to generate line spread functions describing dose distributions at a variety of depths within a homogeneous water phantom. The line spread function data are convolved with a step function that represents the edge of a primary radiation field. The dosimetric information beyond the edge of the field is reported in the form of tissue-air ratios for three different beam spectra in the diagnostic energy range.
