Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n dosimetry measuring the dose of radiation emitted by a radioactive source
    • ***
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n dosimetry (Med) Measurement of doses; specif., a system of therapeutics which uses but few remedies, mostly alkaloids, and gives them in doses fixed by certain rules.
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n dosimetry The accurate measurement of the doses of medicines.
    • n dosimetry A system of therapeutics in which treatment is directed chiefly toward the symptoms and consists in the administration of alkaloids in the form of granules at definite intervals, each granule containing a single dose of the remedy of proper amount for administration at the prescribed interval.

Etymology

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
NL. dosis, dose + -metry,

Usage

In literature:

Measurements of radiation dosage have been made by chemical and photographic dosimetry, ion chambers, and biological dosimetry.
"Significant Achievements in Space Bioscience 1958-1964" by National Aeronautics and Space Administration
***

In news:

The reassessment of the radiation dosimetry from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs is almost complete.
***

In science:

For instance, in problems involving magnets, the momentum pc (MeV) is convenient, whereas in dosimetry we may use the residual range in water (cm).

In dosimetry, solid phantoms are often used for convenience.
Evaluation of plastic materials for range shifting, range compensation, and solid-phantom dosimetry in carbon-ion radiotherapy
Their material should be uniform, stable, machinable, inexpensive, and ideally equivalent to water, which is the reference material for dosimetry.
Evaluation of plastic materials for range shifting, range compensation, and solid-phantom dosimetry in carbon-ion radiotherapy
These requirements are also valid for solid phantom materials, which are used when water-phantom dosimetry is not possible or convenient.
Evaluation of plastic materials for range shifting, range compensation, and solid-phantom dosimetry in carbon-ion radiotherapy
Dosimetric water equivalence, which is evaluated by uniformity of effective densities for relevant interactions, is essential to energy degrading of charged-particle beams for range shifting, range compensation, and dosimetry.
