Sample Chapter [pdf format]

Even though radiation dosimetry is a relatively mature subject, there still was no widely used current book devoted to clinical dosimetry until this 2009 AAPM summer school book. Making sure the dose delivered to the patient is what it should be is one of the most important jobs medical physicists have. There are many aspects to doing this, but at the core, radiation must be accurately measured. One of the original major tasks of the AAPM was to establish methods that its members could use to reliably carry out this task. The successes of this task are found in such things as the clinical dosimetry protocols and formalisms for brachytherapy dosimetry , the development of accredited calibration laboratories, and a myriad of task group reports produced on different dosimetry techniques and delivery modalities.
