Clinical Proton Dosimetry - Part I: Beam Production, Beam Delivery and Measurement of Absorbed Dose

This Report is the first of a two-part set treating clinical proton dosimetry. The Report includes a description of the interaction of protons with matter, and treats various methods of beam production, the characteristics of proton beams in clinical use, methods for beam monitoring and specific recommendations for dose calibration. more

Dose and Volume Specification for Reporting Interstitial Therapy (Report 58)

This Report is the latest in a series of ICRU Reports treating matters of dose specification. The Commission previously issued ICRU Report 38, Dose and Volume Specification for Reporting Intracavitary Therapy in Gynecology and ICRU Report 50, Prescribing, Recording and Reporting Photon Beam Therapy.

Conversion Coefficients for use in Radiological Protection against External Radiation (Report 57)

ICRU Report 57 is the product of a long collaboration between the ICRU and the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). The report was prepared by a Joint Task Group of the two Commissions, underwent separate review by each Commission and has been published in the series of each Commission.

Dosimetry of External Beta Rays for Radiation Protection (Report 56)

This Report recognizes that the general aim of beta-ray dosimetry in radiation protection is to provide dosimetric information that will help in keeping any harmful effects of beta rays within acceptable limits and that, in the event of serious over-exposure, will assist medical treatment and prognosis.

Secondary Electron Spectra from Charged Particle Interactions (Report 55)

ICRU Report No. 55 provides a comprehensive guide to quantitative information about emission of secondary electrons in collisions of fast electrons, protons, alpha particles, and heavier ions with free atoms and molecules and with condensed matter. Explanations of the various mechanisms of ionization are given.

Medical Imaging - The Assessment of Image Quality (Report 54)

This Report proposes a framework, based on statistical decision theory, within which imaging system performance may be measured, optimized and compared. Imaging system assessment depends on the task for which the system is intended and can, therefore, be cast in terms of task performance, which can be measured in two stages.
