    Abstract

    For the past ten years the author has been studying radiation dosimetry, particularly with a view to radiosterilization processes. The results of the theoretical and practical investigations have been reported in the papers cited below. The aim of this paper is to suggest and discuss criteria and methods of dosimetry in radiosterilization of medical products. The papers cited below deal with 60Co irradiation and with electron irradiation by means of a pulsed linear accelerator. The methods and procedures used necessarily vary considerably from one type of plant to the other, and it is obvious that a systematic attempt to cover all steps in the dosimetric procedures requires a team effort. The author of this paper has devoted himself to absolute dose measurements by caiorimetric methods, to calibration of the aqueous oxalic acid dosimeter, and to process dosimetry as a whole.
