ICRU - REPORT 57

Conversion Coefficients for use in Radiological Protection against External Radiation (Report 57)

active, Most Current
Organization: ICRU
Publication Date: 1 January 1998
Status: active
scope:

The Report provides an extensive and authoritative set of data linking field quantities, operational quantities and protection quantities in a way that will be of help to those working in radiation protection. Conversion coefficients are provided for idealized irradiation geometries, monoenergetic radiaitons in various anthropomorphic models (mathematical models) and measurement phantoms. The major sections of the report are:

• Introduction

• Quantities Used in Radiological Protection for External Radiation

• Determination of Absorbed Dose Distributions in the Human Body and in Anthropomorphic and other Models

• Conversion Coefficients

• Relationships Between Quantities
