AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information


This task group will document and make recommendations on the clinical use of TLDs and OSLs.

  1. To review the variety of TLD/OSL materials available, including features and limitations of each. 
  2. To outline the optimal steps to achieve accurate and precise dosimetry with luminescent detectors and to evaluate the uncertainty induced when less rigorous procedures are used.
  3. To develop consensus guidelines on the optimal use of luminescent dosimeters for clinical practice.
  4. To develop guidelines for some special medically relevant uses of TLDs/OSLs (e.g., mixed field i.e. photon/neutron dosimetry, particle beam dosimetry, skin dosimetry).
