ICRU - REPORT 30
Quantitative Concepts and Dosimetry in Radiobiology
|Publication Date:||1 January 1979|
The Report is, in essense, a handbook, primarily for the experimental radiobiologist and the radiological physicist, although it is also of value to the hospital physicist and radiotherapist. The Report introduces and describes concepts and definitions of importance in a quantitative radiobiology. The material is intended to provide both the physicist and the biologist a fuller appreciation of the range of concepts involved in performing work in a quantitative manner, the degree of accuracy desired and appropriate, and the difficulties and pitfalls associated with achieving that degree of accuracy. The dosimetry portion of the new report constitutes a revision of ICRU Report 10e, Radiobiological Dosimetry.
