Measuring and Facility Technology for Medical Dosimetry

Working Group 6.22

Profile

The department 6.2 Dosimetry for radiation therapy and diagnostic radiology operates 11 radiation facilities (X-ray facilities, gamma radiation facilities, computer tomography, electron accelerators). In addition to the measuring stations, which are installed directly at the irradiation facilities, in department 6.2 about 10 further measuring and control stations with the same complex structure are operated for the representation of the units 'Gray' (water calorimeter, open-air chambers, alanine) and for research activities (mobile measuring units). All measuring stations are equipped with self-developed software. Within the scope of research projects new measuring stations have to be developed and/or existing ones have to be modified according to the requirements. The task of the working group comprises the operation and further development of the measurement and plant technology of department 6.2, including the associated quality assurance.
