Objective: To Study on the relationship between the change of injection current,field symmetry of linear accelerator,frequency and efficiency of calibration on gun filament,and to establish the necessary quality control(QC) procedure to ensure a better field symmetry for clinical use.Methods: In the service mode of a clinically used linear accelerator,the gun filament current was changed manually with a step of 0.1 A in both positive and minus way from the symmetric point.The corresponding field symmetry and flatness were measured with films.Results: When the injection value was changed 0.2 A away from the best field symmetry point,the symmetry and flatness became worse 3%.Approximately,the actual injection current became(0.1~0.2) A smaller every month for our normal workload.Conclusions: It is possible to evaluate the change on symmetry and flatness caused from the fluctuation of injection current,by monitoring the actual value of the injection current.Periodical checking and calibrating on injection current or gun filament current should be taken to have a good field symmetry and flatness.
