The generating equipment of medicas radiations requires of an suitable methodology to evaluate the fisicas amounts: absorbed dose, half-value thickness (CS), yield, among others to assure the optimal conditions of use.
The results show that the parametrizadas functions consider the amounts of absorbed dose, half-value thickness and of the yield with smaller uncertainties to 2%, and reproduce the experimental datas with smaller errors to 8%.
