The doses were measured at the depth of 10 cm and at dmax for two energies 6 MV and 10 MV on the Elekta machine. This was done by using only two points and comparing the results with percentage depth dose (PDD) for the depth dose curve for both energies. In addition the doses were obtained by using three method of detectors suck as the ion chamber, TLDs, and films. Approximately the same results of doses were obtained for all measurement by using different detectors. Therefore, these detectors are reliable to be used in clinical applications.
