8 Radiotherapy Generators Kilovoltage X-rays are generally used in the treatment of skin cancers and superficial tumors, whereas megavoltage X-rays are used in the management of deeply seated tumors [22]. Megavoltage electrons, on the other hand, are used in the treatment of superficial tumors. 0 mm aluminum. SSD = 2 cm 50% depth dose is 5 mm. 30) 50–150 kV Filtered with 1–4 mm aluminum.

X-ray tubes are the main source of X-rays in laboratory instruments. In such a tube, a focused electron beam is accelerated under high voltage within a glass vacuum tube impacts a fixed or rotating target. When the electrons approach target atoms, Coulomb interactions with the nuclei cause the electrons to be suddenly deflected from their previous paths and slowed.
