Abstract: In this project we studied the dose distributions of 6 and 15 MV photon beams in a heterogeneous phantom which contains layers of lung-equivalent material. We compared measurements done at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau with the results of Monte Carlo simulations using the PENELOPE/penEasy program and the predictions of the AAA and Acuros algorithms. We also studied the quality index of our beams and the relation between dose to water and dose to medium.
