ICRU - REPORT 47
Measurement of Dose Equivalents from External Photon and Electron Radiations
|Publication Date:||1 January 1992|
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-MÃ¼ller 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.
