IPEM codes of practice and topical report series – IOPscience

We hope this report will aid their work. Vascular Laboratory Practice Part 6. The Report examines issues common to all installations Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy. IPEM’s vision is to constantly improve human health by the application of physics and engineering to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease through research, innovation, education and clinical practice.

In parallel to these reports and codes of practice, IPEM is now launching a complementary series of short topical reports. Radioactive Sample Counting – Principles and Pratice. Click here to close this overlay, or press the “Escape” key on your keyboard.

These aim to address a specific area of current or developing practice, with rapid production times, to benefit the clinical physicist or engineer ‘at repotr coalface’. Further information about our available publications can be found here.

IPEM also produces scientific reports, which contain consensus guidelines on a wide range of topics. Later chapters consider specific components of the modern linear accelerator including systems for multileaf collimation, electronic portal imaging, dynamic wedging, record and verify, intensity modulation and stereotaxis.

IPEM’s aim is to promote the advancement of physics and engineering applied to medicine and biology for the public benefit. As the use of hypofractionated regimes such as stereotactic body radiotherapy increases, FFF beams are an attractive proposition for a busy clinical department.

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 Many departments are looking to introduce these modalities, mainly because of their higher dose rates and potential ease of modelling in the treatment planning system.
