## Interest Rate

The percentage of the value of a balance or debt that one pays or is paid each time period. For example, if one holds a bond with a face value of \$1,000 and a 3% interest rate payable each quarter, one receives \$30 each quarter. The percentage of the interest rate remains constant (usually), but the amount one pays or is paid changes according to the amount of the balance or debt. For example, if one pays off part of the principal on a loan each month, the amount one pays in interest decreases even though the rate remains the same. See also: Time Value of Money.

To apply different dose rates during radiotherapy, multiple LINAC instruments can be used [22].
Transmission factor B [29] is defined as the ratio between the annual dose rate at a given distance with shielding system (seeking for the annual dose to agree with the international restriction that depends on the definition of the type of adjoining zone, whether controlled or not controlled) and the annual dose rate in the same point without shielding.
Energy fluency was converted into dose rate using the dose energy (DE), dose function (DF), and tally multiplier (Fm) cards.
Equivalent dose rate measurements were monitored at 10 cm from each side of the irradiator (front, rear, right and left), using a Thyac III Survey Meter.
