Acceptance tests form an important part of machine installation procedures. Acceptance tests were carried out on CLINAC-1800 accelerator installed at KMIO, as recommended by Varian Associates, U.S.A. in accordance with the German Standard DIN 6847. The tests included radiation survey, mechanical tests, radiation isocenter test, photon beam performance, electron beam performance and dosimetry tests. The results of these acceptance tests were very satisfactory- Tests such as depth dose, field flatness, field symmetry constitute routine quality assurance programme for an accelerator.
