A method has been developed to predict Central Axis Percentage Depth Dose Distribution (CAPDD), using buildup factor concept of radiation transport studies in infinite medium. This concept has been applied successfully for finite medium in the case of 60Co beam and high energy x-rays. The predicted and measured values, which agree within +3% are presented here.
