Teaching Course on Small Field Dosimetry

The course addresses key issues in small field dosimetry. It gives a thorough introduction to PTW detectors and QA systems recommended for small fields and provides a good mix of theory and practice. As such, it is very well suited for medical physicists who want to update and extend their skills and knowledge of practical dosimetry.

Key topics covered in this course
  • Small field dosimetry: International recommendations (TRS 483)
  • Suitable detectors and measurement procedures
  • microDiamond and stereotactic commissioning
  • Small field air chambers, output factors in water and potential issues
  • Influence of dose rate dependency to relative measurements
  • Quantum noise and its importance in dosimetry on linear accelerators
  • Data analysis and discussion
  • PDDs and reference detector issues; signal quality and noise
  • BEAMSCAN System: Features and set-up
