34). A source with an activity of less than 3,000 Ci is replaced with a new one; this is necessary after 5–7 years of use. 34 Cobalt-60 teletherapy unit Co-60 teletherapy units provide good performance for tumors with depths of <10 cm. Thus, the use of a linac is recommended for more deeply seated tumors. 000 Roentgens per hour at a meter (RHm) (165 Roentgens per minute at a meter (Rmm)). The leakage from the treatment head is not more than 2 mR/h at 1 m. The drive mechanism for the source within the treatment head has a very simple linear structure, and returns to its parked position spontaneously in emergencies (even during electric interruptions).

37) [24] This is an oscillator that produces hundreds of microwaves per second. The frequency of the microwaves is 3,000 MHz. The exit power of a low-energy linac magnetron (lower than 6 MV) is 2 MW. 38) [24] This does not produce microwaves; it is a microwave amplifier. Microwaves produced in low-power oscillators are sent to the klystron in order to gain power (energy). The klystrons used in a high-energy linac can boost the energy to 25 MV, leading to an exit power of 5 MW. The dose stabilities of klystrons are much better than those of magnetrons.
