Because of the low energy of photon or beta radioactive sources currently used for modern techniques of brachytherapy, and the high dose gradient existing around them, the dosimeters to be used for quality controls of the sources or absorbed dose measurements should have special characteristics such as an accurate and reproducible response, a low dose .

The uncertainty in the calibration of the dosimetry systems in this study arise largely from the uncertainty in the ionization chamber calibration of %, solid water to water dose correction of % and then to a smaller extent from the reproducibility in the phantom positioning of % and dosimeter irradiation positions corrections (TLDs of Cited by: Abstract.

Many solid-state detectors have been successfully used to perform the quality control and in vivo dosimetry in medical physics, both in diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy, as they have high sensitivity in a small volume; most of them do not require electrical connection and have dosimetric characteristics of interest such as: good accuracy and reproducibility, as well.

The dose range that can be measured by solid state detectors is literally enormous, extending from the order of milliroentgens to beyond 10/sup 8/ roentgens, depending upon the phenomenon employed.

All solid state dosimeters are secondary instruments and must be calibrated against some standard, such as an ion chamber. From the essential background physics and radiobiology to the latest imaging and treatment modalities, the updated second edition of Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics: Theory and Practice covers all aspects of the subject.

In Volume I, Part A includes the Interaction of Radiation with Matter – charged particles and photons - and the Fundamentals of Dosimetry – Format: Hardcover.

Chapters on applications include reference dosimetry for standard and small fields in radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology and interventional procedures, dosimetry of unsealed and sealed radionuclide.

The set of LiF detectors (MTS-7 LiF:Mg,Ti, MTT-7 LiF:Mg,Ti with enhanced Ti concentration and MCP-7 LiF:Mg,Cu,P) show different relative response after doses of heavy charged particles. Therefore, the ratio of responses of these detectors can be used to determine radiation quality in unknown radiation fields with heavy charge particles, by: 8.

This way, solid-state detectors provide a higher resolution and sensitivity during radiation detection, i.e., if compared to liquid-state detectors and ionization chambers.

In particular, the semiconductor solid-state detectors mainly comprise photonic devices; circuit board components of electronic gadgets that are used for production and Cited by: 7.Radiation dosimetry in the fields of health physics and radiation protection is the measurement, calculation and assessment of the ionizing radiation dose absorbed by an object, usually the human body.

This applies both internally, due to ingested or inhaled radioactive substances, or externally due to irradiation by sources of radiation.
