AbstractPurpose: Verify experimentally the theoretical prediction of F. Tessier and I. Kawrakow [Med. Phys. 37, 96–107 (2010)] that it is possible to design a thimble ionization chamber with no shift in its effective point of measurement (EPOM), i.e., a chamber that provides a measure of the dose to the medium at the location of its central axis.
