Resum
Purpose: Several authors studied the problem of geometrical matching of fields produced by medical linear accelerators. However, a general solution has yet to be published. Currently available solutions are based on parallelism arguments. This study provides a general solution, considering not only parallelism but also field sizes. Methods: A fixed field with arbitrary field size, gantry, collimator, and couch angle is considered, and another field with a fixed gantry angle is matched to it. A s...
