Abstract

The results of a study of two commercially available LiF(Mg,Cu,P) TL materials, a GR200 detector and a MCP-Ns thin detector, are described in order to use these phosphors for individual monitoring for the extremities. After a dosimetry system has been type tested, the implementation routine is not straightforward. Additional tests and software modification are needed to make the routine system work comply with the type test results. Not often can literature be found on the steps required to implement the results in a routine study. This paper reports the results of the individual calibration of about 15 000 extremity dosemeters, 12 000 containing a GR200 detector and 3000 an MCP-Ns thin detector. It describes the experimental procedure followed in order to assure reproducibility and stability of the results with proper accuracy and reliability. In particular, this is the first time that results on homogeneity of such a large batch of MCP-Ns detectors are reported.
