The head scatter factor Sh is one of the important parameters for MU calculation. It is defined as a ratio of absorbed dose of arbitrary field to that of reference field. The Sh can be determined by using two physical quantities. One is energy fluence of primary photons generated from target and scattered photons from several components of treatment head. Another is backscattered radiation from collimator...
