Phantoms and Computational Models in Therapy, Diagnosis and Protection (Report 48)

This Report was prepared in recognition of the fact that the development of realistic body phantoms and computational models is strongly dependent on the availability of comprehensive human anatomical data.

Measurement of Dose Equivalents from External Photon and Electron Radiations (Report 47)

ICRU Report No. 47 is the third report in the series treating determination of dose equivalent. The first two reports of the series, ICRU Report 39, Determination of Dose Equivalents from External Radiation Sources, and ICRU Report 43, Determination of Dose Equivalents from External Radiation Sources - Part II, provided the grounds for the Commission's selection of the quantities and the basis for their definition. more

Photon, Electron, Proton and Neutron Interaction Data for Body Tissues, with Data Disk (Report 46D)

Photon, Electron, Proton and Neutron Interaction Data for Body Tissues, with Data Disk, provides a printed copy of ICRU Report 46 and disks (both 3-1/2" and 5-1/4") containing the photon, electron and neutron interaction data for body tissues as set out in Report 46. more

Photon, Electron, Proton and Neutron Interaction Data for Body Tissues (Report 46)

This Report is a companion volume expanding on the material covered in ICRU Report 44, Tissue Substitutes in Radiation Dosimetry and Measurement. The new report provides specific information on representative sets of tissues that illustrates the effects of tissue composition variation on the pertinent radiation interaction quantities. It includes photon, electron, proton and neutron interaction data for body tissues, covering the age interval from fetus to adult. Soft tissues, skeletal tissues and calculi are considered. more

Clinical Neutron Dosimetry-Part: I: Determination of Absorbed Dose in a Patient Treated by External

ICRU Report No. 45 is the first of two reports addressed to clinical neutron dosimetry. The report focuses on standardization of the dosimetry procedures used in support of the clinical applications of fast neutrons. It has been recognized that the comparison of the clinical results of fast neutron therapy at different institutions is compromised by difficulties in comparing the technical irradiation conditions.

Tissue Substitutes in Radiation Dosimetry and Measurement (Report 44)

This Report was prepared in recognition of the fact that the measurement of absorbed doses within and around the irradiated body tissues necessitates the use of carefully selected materials from which phantoms and radiation detectors can be constructed. The use of such materials permits determination of absorbed doses when information on the energy and nature of the charged particles at the point of interest is incomplete or fragmentary. more
