Paper Abstract

The success of radiotherapy relies on the on-line monitoring of the dose of radiation to which the tumour and its adjacent tissues are exposed. Conventional thermoluminescence dosimeters provide only off-line monitoring, since they determine the radiation dosage after completion of the exposure.
