Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The six Centers for Radiological Physics performed periodic thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD) reviews for photon beams at 276 facilities across the country. The purpose of the reviews and the techniques in use are briefly described. Results from 2413 mailed reviews of megavoltage units indicate that, in 92% of the reviews, a specified dose was delivered within +/- 5% of the TLD-measured dose. A comparison is made to other mailed TLD review systems.
