ICRU - REPORT 39
Determination of Dose Equivalents Resulting from External Radiation Sources
|Publication Date:||1 January 1985|
This Report discusses the dosimetric implications of recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection, defines the dose equivalents pertinent for monitoring irradiation of the trunk of the body, and sets out desirable characteristics and current capabilities of instruments for measuring the defined dose equivalents. The information is intended to make it possible to specify, in numerical terms, the degree of irradiation that occurs when individuals are exposed to external sources of ionizing radiation.
