Abstract

High energy electron beams in the range 150-250 MeV are investigated to evaluate their feasibility for radiotherapy. Monte Carlo simulation results from PENELOPE code are used to determine lateral spread and penetration of these beams. It is shown that dose distribution of electron beams compare favorably with photon beams. Electromagnetic control of electron beams enables scanned intensity modulation not possible with photon beams.
