Sažetak
Paper describes the dosimetry characteristics of the total skin electron therapy (TSET) as omplemented at the University hospital Osijek radiotherapy department. Patients are treated in the standing position, using six dual angled fields at a "source to skin" distance of 3.5m. Acceptable beam uniformity and depth dose distribution were achieved while maintaining a low level of x-ray contamination. Tge measurements showed that special care must be taken with ionisation chamber measurements under TSET conditions to avoid incorrect readings due to a "polarity effect". This technique enable implementation of the TSET in a treatment room of standard dimensions.
