ICRU - REPORT 47

Measurement of Dose Equivalents from External Photon and Electron Radiations

active, Most Current
Organization: ICRU
Publication Date: 1 January 1992
Status: active
scope:

ICRU Report 47 gives guidance on the design, calibration and use of instruments required to implement the recommended system of dose determination. Covered in the report are principles of measurement, operational quantities, characteristics of instruments, calibrations and the impact of new operational quantities on the design of future instrumentation. Among the instruments characterized are ionization chambers, proportional counters, Geiger-Müller counters, scintillation detectors, semiconductor detectors, photographic films, thermoluminescent dosimeters, thermally stimulated exoelectron emission detectors and photoluminescent detectors. An appendix provides conversion factors for dose equivalent quantities.
