Abstract

A thin, large area transparent transmission chamber mounted below the accessory tray is described and its suitability for daily treatment delivery consistency is investigated. The sensitivity of the detector to changes in monitor unit setting, field size, wedge size, missing blocks, and wedges is presented. Some of the other potential applications are also discussed.
