Dosimetry of Irradiators Used in Radiobiology

Radiobiology Research and Small Irradiator Dosimetry
Graduate Investigator: Kurt Pedersen
Summary of Research: Due to the phase out of Cs-137 irradiators and their replacement with filtered x-ray units, the impact on current radiobiology research can be a significant source of uncertainty. A variety of experimental methods and computational techniques are currently under investigation to accurately quantify the dosimetrically relevant output parameters of these units to maintain historical consistency with past radiobiology research outcomes.
