PHOTON ENERGIES

Dual-energy linear accelerators (also referred to as “high energy,”) can produce various photon energies. Two different definitions are used, and this is often confusing to buyers of linear accelerator systems. The following chart illustrates the equivalency:


Photon Energies using the BJR #11 Definition

4MV

6MV

10MV

15MV

18MV

20MV

24MV

Equivalent Energies using the BJR #17 Definition

4MV

6MV

10MV

16MV

23MV

25MV

30MV


*BJR is the abbreviation for “British Journal of Radiology”
