The machine characteristics and machine profile used for dose calculation are:
Novalis Tx with Varian 120 HD MLC
Averaged beam data from multiple machines
6 MV nominal beam energy
No split fields
No light fields
A Novalis Tx machine profile, which is based on averaged data of real Novalis Tx measurements, is used to calculate doses in the application. If the linac used for patient treatment is inferior to a Novalis Tx, a comparable plan quality may not be achievable with the treatment system.
