Investigation of the dosimetric characteristics of PRESAGETM


Journal Article

In this work we perform a detailed investigation of the fundamental dosimetric characteristics of PRESAGETM, to determine its potential for dosimetry. A common problem encountered when attempting to evaluate a new material, is how to efficiently evaluate the large multitude of potential mechanisms and response-characteristics that may affect the practicality and accuracy of that material for dosimetry. We introduce a new method designed to enable rapid, accurate and convenient evaluation of any material which has an optical dose-response, and can be formed into columns of precise dimension (e.g. spectro-photometric cuvettes). The method is also optimised to enable evaluation of dosimetric characteristics with the minimum volume of material, to minimise cost, and problems associated to storage, transportation etc. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
