Recent Medical TLD Courses held  Novotel, Reading and at Phoenix Dosimetry Ltd.

We have recently hosted two TLD training courses in partnership with Rotunda Scientific, the first was aimed at the personnel monitoring TLD user, and the second specifically for the medical use of TLD.

The courses were run by Joe Rotunda and covered all aspects of theory, preparation, calibration and implementation of TLD in both personnel and medical applications.

Phoenix Dosimetry now offer the range of QA tools from Eckel and Ziegler, the range includes the popular Isocentric Beam Checker IBC II which consists of a large opaque acrylic screen backed by a secondary plate, supported by two lateral uprights. The screen is inscribed with lines precisely defining corners, edges, and centre of the screen's 2cm x 2cm, 5cm x 5cm, 10cm x 10cm, 15cm x 15cm, and 20cm x 20cm fields.

Intersecting centre lines are inscribed with short lines spaced 1 cm apart. The screen can rotate about its axis in increments of 45 degree. Tungsten markers of 2 mm diameter are embedded in the centre and corners of the fields. A 10" x 12" ready-pack film can be sandwiched between the two plates. When exposed, the tungsten markers project as sharp image on the film.
