Clinical dosimetry for radiotherapy covers the most important task in clinical medical physics: getting the dose measured correctly. Topics covered will include fundamentals of dosimetry, theory and application of AAPM dosimetry protocols (TG51-accelerators, TG61-x rays, TG43-brachytherapy), IMRT dosimetry, primary standards and the dosimetry chain to the clinic, instrumentation from ion chambers to MOSFETs and everything in between. There will be plenty of opportunity to interact with the Summer School faculty during this 4.5 day meeting in the Pike's Peak region of scenic Colorado.
