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”
