Quantities, Units and Terms in Radioecology (Report 65)

This Report provides the first comprehensive and authoritative set of definitions for quantities, units and terms used in the highly interdisciplinary field of radioecology. The scope of this report is the presentation of the primary quantities and terms that are used in studies of radionuclide transport in the environment and those used to help assess the effects of environmental radioactivity on plants, animals and humans.


Dosimetry of High-Energy Photon Beams Based on Standards of Absorbed Dose to Water (Report 64)

This Report examines the methods by which absorbed dose to water can be determined for photon radiations with maximum energies from approximately to 1 MeV to 50 MeV, the beam qualities most commonly used for radiation therapy.


Nuclear Data for Neutron and Proton Radiotherapy and for Radiation Protection (Report 63)

This Report represents a departure for the ICRU in that it includes a compact disc carrying an extensive compilation of data. Included in this publication is a comprehensive tabulation of nuclear data especially relevant for medical, industrial, research, and protection applications. Extensive microscopic cross-sections for neutron and proton interaction with elements important to dosimetry, radiation transport, and industrial applications are provided. For each application, the granularity of the data tabulations reflects the anticipated needs.


Prescribing, Recording and Reporting Photon Beam Therapy (Report 62)

ICRU Report 62 provides recommendations on the volumes and absorbed doses that are important in prescribing, recording and reporting photon beam therapy, utilizing the new and improved irradiation techniques that have become available since the publication of ICRU Report 50 in 1993.


Tissues Substitutes, Phantoms and Computation Modelling in Medical Ultrasound (Report 61)

This Report presents an expansion of previous ICRU work on phantoms and computational models (ICRU Report 48) into the area of medical ultrasound. Report 61 reviews the use of tissue substitutes, phantoms and computational body models representing human tissues in medical ultrasound.


Fundamental Quantities and Units for Ionizing Radiation (Report 60)

This Report is the latest in a long series of ICRU documents providing definitions for quantities and units employed in radiation science. The Report supercedes Part A of ICRU report 33 dealing with quantities and units for general use. Part B of Report 33, covering quantities and units for use in radiation protection, was replaced in 1993 by ICRU Report 51, Quantities and Units in Radiation Protection Dosimetry.
