CC04 Ionization Chamber

Description

The CC04 is the conventional ionization chambers for measurements of small fields and of ranges with high dose gradients, e.g. stereotactic fields. CC04 is intended for absolute and relative dosimetry of photon, electron, and proton beams in radiotherapy. Measurements can be performed in air, water phantoms, or solid phantoms. CC04 is a high spatial resolution, small volume chamber. It is waterproof, vented through a waterproof sleeve, and fully guarded.
