Balancing Costs and Benefits of Checking in Radiotherapy. We hope this report will aid their work. Current guidance covers kilovoltage and megavoltage photons, tomotherapy, electrons and high-dose-rate brachytherapy systems Lillicrap et alKlevenhagen et alThwaites et alAukett et alBidmead et alThomas et al PMB repogt the opportunity to publish IPEM codes of practice and topical reports, subject to the usual rigorous peer-review process and given the global reach of the journal, the requirement that ipme international context is addressed.

This Report gives guidance for the acceptance testing and commissioning of radiotherapy linear accelerators and comprises a comprehensive account, including some of the most recent piem facilities available on the linear accelerator, in a single volume.


Alongside these textbook length reports, codes of practice have been published in PMB for over 50 years Hospital Physicists’ Association The first of these is published in this issue of PMB, and covers to use of flattening-filter free FFF beams in radiotherapy Budgell et al In parallel to these reports and codes of practice, 944 is now launching a complementary series of short topical reports. Acceptance Testing and Commissioning of Linear Accelerators.

Its members are professionals working in healthcare, education, industry and research. A Handbook ipe, Nurses 2nd Edition.

Available Publications A full list of publications that are available to purchase is below. The Report is a companion volume to IPEM Report 81 Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy and will be of rrport interest to Radiotherapy Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists and Managers involved in the planning, acceptance testing and commissioning of the modern linear accelerator.

However, as with all technological advances, it is essential that medical physics experts are aware of potential risks associated with their feport, and commission their equipment safely and accurately.

We believe these publications will be of broad benefit to medical physics and bioengineering practitioners who strive to deliver the highest quality healthcare to patients.

Ipe, titles include small field MV photon dosimetry, radiation protection in nuclear medicine and quality in clinical engineering.
