There was an article in the latest issue of Radiation Protection Dosimetry
which should have the information you're looking for.

Subject:  Dosimeters and Phantoms

Does anyone out there know of a paper, article, or other reference
regarding the relative response of a dosimeter or other dose measuring
instrument when backed by the following phantom types:
ICRU Sphere
PMMA Solid Phantom 30X30X15 cm
ISO Phantom:  PMMA filled with water, above dimensions for perimeter,
2.5mm PMMA on the front face, 10mm PMMA for the other sides.
I am trying to get a number to use for measuring deep dose H(10).  I
have data using the solid PMMA and want to get a number to compare it
with the other two geometries.
