ICRU - REPORT 56

Dosimetry of External Beta Rays for Radiation Protection (Report 56)

active, Most Current
Organization: ICRU
Publication Date: 1 January 1997
Status: active
scope:

The report outlines the biological basis for beta-ray dose limitations, describes the techniques for measuring beta-ray doses or calculating them for known sources, and provides physical data needed for such determinations. Major sections of the report treat the following topics: Quantities relevant to beta-ray dosimetry

• Quantities relevant to beta-ray dosimetry

• Anatomical and radiobiological basis of skin dosimetry

• Beta-ray sources and spectra

• Physics of the interaction of electrons and matter

• Calculation of dose distributions

• Measurement techniques

• Routine beta-ray measurements

• Special problems of beta-ray measurements

• Standard sources and calibrations

Appendicies cover composition and characteristics of materials, stopping powers and ranges of electrons, and absorbed dose distributions and conversion factors.
