Abstract

The 60 Co beam emerging from the Gamma-Tomo source assembly was simulated in a previously study [1] and the authors reported the spectra of particles reaching the plane immediately (1mm) before the collimation system entrance. In the present work, we simulate the 60Co beam emerging from a novel Gamma-Tomo SBRT collimation system and calculate the output factors and dose rates for different source configurations and collimator sizes
