Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The use of EXT-RAD™ extremity TLDs and radiochromic film to measure doses from primarily beta-emitting microparticles is discussed. Specific calibration techniques have been developed, using both Monte Carlo modelling and experiments. Results for a 90Sr/90Y microparticle are presented to illustrate the general techniques and to demonstrate reasonable agreement between the dosimetry methods.
