Summary of "A NEW TL-DOS NEUTRON DOSEMETER FOR MEASUREMENTS OF THE PERSONAL DOSE EQUIVALENT HP(10)."

A new thermoluminescence albedo dosemeter with improved properties is developed as part of the TL-DOS project. The dosemeter measures the neutron and photon whole-body dose of radiation workers. The TL-DOS neutron dosemeter is presented and its results of well-known field measurements as well as field calibrations are shown. Its advantages, such as its potential to measure the high-linear energy transfer peaks, its improved detector sensitivity and long detector lifetime, are explained. The new dosemeter is compared to a thermoluminescence albedo dosemeter already used in routine dosimetry in Germany.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.

A trace element with the atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 10.81. Boron-10, an isotope of boron, is used as a neutron absorber in BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
