Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics (DMRP)

Dosimetry Codes of Practice and Guidelines for Radiation Measurements

One of the subprogramme’s core responsibilities is to operate the central laboratory in the SSDL Network. In order to maintain the calibration service at the appropriate level and to enable dosimetry standards to be disseminated properly by SSDLs, it is essential that research and development in radiation dosimetry techniques be performed and encouraged. This project embodies these research and development activities. Through collaboration with international organizations such as ICRU and IOMP (International Organization of Medical Physicists) the Agency is able to influence their work in the area of dosimetry and to benefit from early access to on-going projects. The beneficiaries of this project are the SSDLs and the communities that they serve.
