The Report is a companion volume to IPEM Report 81 Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy and will be of particular interest to Radiotherapy Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists and Managers involved in the planning, acceptance testing and commissioning of the modern linear ipen.
IPEM publishes scientific journals and books and organises conferences to disseminate knowledge and support members in their development. Principles, Dosimetry, Sources and Safety. Many departments are looking to introduce these modalities, mainly because of their higher dose rates and potential ease of modelling in the treatment planning system. Radioactive Sample Counting – Principles and Pratice. However, as with all technological advances, it is essential that medical physics experts are aware of potential risks associated with their use, and commission their equipment safely and accurately.
More information about each publication can be found here. The Report examines issues common to all installations such as management of the process, critical examination, electrical, mechanical and radiation safety, mechanical and optical tests, and dosimetric measurements.
