Project: Evaluation of clinical dosimetry protocols for medium- and high energy X-rays, electron and proton beams with ion chambers based on water calorimetry.

abstract
The proposed research project will allow a re-evaluation of clinical dosimetry based on protocols with ionisation chambers. Water calorimetry will be used for direct dose-to-water determination. In this way the uncertainty on absolute dosimetry in clinical therapy beams can be reduced.
