Resumen

Thermoluminescent response of LiF:Mg,Cu,P+PTFE under clinical photon irradiation was obtained. Thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) were irradiated for determining entrance surface dose (ESD) in a solid water phantom when using standard clinical adult treatment protocols. A Monte Carlo simulation of photon interaction with matter was performed and absorbed dose determined. ESD calculated by MCNPX code was greater than those determined by direct measurements in phantom. The results obtained open the possibility for using this material as a TLDs in medical accelerators. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
