Figure 5: Out-of-field dose in-plane – Monte Carlo simulation values in absolute scale: Y-axis is represented by the out-of-field dose per MU (μGy/MU), and the X-axis is represented by the off-axis distance (cm). A logarithmic scale was used on the Y-axis to represent the entire range of values. Four energies (6 MV, 6 MV flattening filter free, 10 MV, and 15 MV) are represented in sections a, b, c, and d, respectively, and five field sizes are represented by different styles of dotted and solid lines
