Dosimetry is crucial in all stages of the radiotherapy process to ensure patients are receiving the correct dose to the intended anatomy. Work in this department aims to improve the accuracy of existing dosimetry methods and develop novel techniques. This includes research in the areas of radiation beam calibration, accurate measurement of non-standard treatment fields, in vivo dosimetry techniques and Monte Carlo radiation transport simulations.
