Features

  • Provides a comprehensive introduction to plastic scintillation dosimetry and its use in the field of radiation dosimetry
  • Describes the phenomenon of the scintillation, light detection and evaluation properties of scintillator materials, and difficulties caused by Cerenkov radiation
  • Explores the use of small plastic scintillation detectors in clinical applications such as radiosurgery dosimetry
  • Covers one-, two-, and three-dimensional dosimetry, optically stimulated luminescence (OSL), and many other timely topics
  • Includes chapters authored by leading experts in the medical physics community

Summary

Scintillation Dosimetry delivers a comprehensive introduction to plastic scintillation dosimetry, covering everything from basic radiation dosimetry concepts to plastic scintillating fiber optics. Comprised of chapters authored by leading experts in the medical physics community, the book:

  • Discusses a broad range of technical implementations, from point source dosimetry scaling to 3D-volumetric and 4D-scintillation dosimetry
  • Addresses a wide scope of clinical applications, from machine quality assurance to small-field and in vivo dosimetry
  • Examines related optical techniques, such as optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) or Čerenkov luminescence

Thus, Scintillation Dosimetry provides an authoritative reference for detailed, state-of-the-art information on plastic scintillation dosimetry and its use in the field of radiation dosimetry.
