Outreach

  • The IAEA conference: International Symposium on Standards, Applications and Quality Assurance in Medical Radiation Dosimetry (IDOS 2019), will include presentations and posters with key results from the RTnorm project. The conference is in Vienna, Austria, June 18-21, 2019.

  • At the ESTRO-38 conference in Milan, Italy, Sunday, April 28, 2019, RTnorm has helped organize a symposium entitled: "Reference and non-reference dosimetry - CoPs and beyond"

    This session focuses on TRS-398 and TRS-483. IAEA put up a project in order to update TRS-398 for MV beams as new developments have taken place (ICRU 90, FFF beams, new detectors, dosimetry for small fields). In this context, kQ results from the RTNORM project will be shown. Furthermore, the fundamentals of the TRS-483 will be explained. The current state of the art related to Appendix I of TRS-483 will be outlined, including a review of available literature on kQ for FFF beams and the implications for reference dosimetry in the clinic. Additionally, reference dosimetry with A1SL ionization chamber in Helical Tomotherapy following TRS-483 concepts will be discussed.
