Virtual Water

An ideal alternative to traditional water phantoms for performing routine QA checks of a linear accelerator.

Setting the Standard in Water-Equivalency

  • Tested at an independent calibration laboratory and certified within 0.5% of water at photon energies.
  • Not affected by humidity or temperature and free of contaminants and air.
  • Customized cavities are available in slabs at least 2 cm thick to accommodate most ion chambers or detectors.
