Measurement of doses; specif., a system of therapeutics which uses but few remedies, mostly alkaloids, and gives them in doses fixed by certain rules.
Relating to the doses of radiation employed in treating a tumor
The accurate measurement of exposures or doses of x-rays, gamma rays, or other radioactive emanations used for the treatment of cancer.
Determination by scientific methods of the amount, rate and distribution of radiation emitted from a source of ionizing radiation.
The measurement and calculation of radiation doses.
It is the distribution of radiation that encompasses the tumor. It is the treatment planning process of calculating and describing how the radiation is delivered into the tissue.
The measurement or the determination by calculations of the internal electric field strength or induced current density, or of the specific absorption (SA) or specific absorption rate (SAR) distributions, in humans or animals exposed to electromagnetic fields and waves.
measuring the dose of radiation emitted by a radioactive source
assessment (by measurement or calculation) of radiation dose.
The measurement of treatment doses.
The process of finding the radiation dose. Carried out by either practical measurements or theoretical evaluation.
The planning of radiation therapy performed by a specifically trained medical dosimetrist.
the theory and application of the principles and techniques involved in the measurement and recording of radiation doses. Its practical aspect is concerned with the use of various types of radiation instruments with which measurements are made (see film badge; thermoluminescent dosimeter; Geiger-Mueller counter).
Doe-si-met-tree] The act of calculating the amount of treatment (e.g. radiation).
The means of calculating the amount of radiation dosage delivered, or to be delivered to a specific area under study. Strictly, the measurement of dose. By application, all activities relating to the specification for determination of radiation dose delivered. Consideration includes the beam orientations and exposures, tissue inhomogeneities, volume under treatment, isodose distributions, etc.
The measurement of radiation doses. It applies to both the devices used (dosimeters) and to the techniques.
Measurement of the power, energy, irradiance, or radiant exposure of light delivered to tissue.
An assessment or measurement method used to determine the radiation dose absorbed by a substance or a person.
The accurate measurement of doses, especially doses of radiation. Involves the use of highly sophisticated equipment and computers.
In radiotherapy, the discipline and equipment for measuring the dose of radiation delivered to cancerous tumors and other cells in a patient.
(doh-SIH-muh-tree) Measurement of radiation exposure from x-rays, gamma rays, or other types of radiation used in the treatment or detection of diseases, including cancer.
Dosimetry is the accurate determination of dosage, i.e., the quantity of radiation received over a given period of time.
The science of determining the treatment plan to deliver the prescribed dose of radiation.
Determination by measurements or calculations of the amount and distribution of radio frequency energy absorbed in a human body exposed to electromagnetic fields.
The measurement of radiation exposure.
Dosimetry is the measurement of absorbed dose in matter and tissue resulting from the exposure to ionizing radiations.
