Very small field dosimetry

Charles, Paul Henry (2014) Very small field dosimetry. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigated in detail the physics of small X-ray fields used in radiotherapy treatments. Because of this work, the ability to accurately measure dose from these very small X-ray fields has been improved in several ways. These include scientifically quantifying when highly accurate measurements are required by introducing the concept of a very small field, and by the invention of a new detector that responds the same in very small fields as in normal fields.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
