Dosimetry

13The dosimetry team ensure that the linacs and other equipment involved in radiotherapy treatment are working optimally to meet the treatment objectives.

This involves performing routine checks of the treatment beam parameters (eg output) and linac geometry.

Further testing is required following equipment upgrades, routine services, or to investigate and resolve problems.

Patient specific tests may be required when new techniques are introduced.

If equipment performance is not satisfactory it is taken out of use until faults are rectified.
