Resum
Purpose: To study the influence of the field setup on the dosimetry at the junction in singleisocenter half-beam techniques. Methods: The dosimetry at the junction for a two-field setup with the gantry at zero was first evaluated with radiochromic films. A three-field setup, with an anterior field and two opposed lateral fields, was also analyzed for two different relative positions of the fields involved. In all cases, the dose increase at the central axis, called the junction dose, was measure...
