EUTEMPE-RX Module MPE12.
EUTEMPE-RX is a series of international high-end courses for medical physicists working in hospitals, medical device companies or universities as well as for scientists in related disciplines. What makes them unique is the on-site phase where we focus specifically on practicals, expert discussions and excursions.
Can you plot the radiation field in a cath lab situation? Do you know how to assess the dose to the eye lens? Can you explain personnel dosimetry to a nurse? Do you know which dosemeter to choose in which clinical setting? These questions, and many more, will be answered in the EUTEMPE-RX module MPE12: "Occupational dosimetry in diagnostic and interventional radiology: Personal dosimetry and competences for MPE with RPE responsibilities. Highly developed technology meets (compulsory) users lacking technological interest in complex settings."
Attend the next course in Braunschweig, Germany on March 30 to April 3 2020.

Passive personal neutron dosemeters: revision of ISO 21909-1 standard is on-going. ASKS FOR FEEDBACK FROM IMSs
ISO TC 85/SC 2 Working Group 19 dealing with “Individual monitoring for external radiations” conducted important work revising the 21909 standard on passive personal neutron dosemeters. Part 1 was published in 2015, whereas Part 2 is to be available in 2020. During the last annual meeting of ISO, it was decided to revise the part 1 of the 21909 standard to take into account, when possible, difficulties raised by the IMSs after trying to characterize their neutron dosemeters according to this very new document. In order to make sure that the revised document is as relevant as possible, it was decided within the ISO working group to take the opportunity of the EURADOS network to directly get feedback from IMSs to identify any big issue that ISO could try to take into account. Here
a letter by WG19 coordinator containing more information.
Be reminded that the deadline for sending comments on the ISO 21909-1:2015 is on Sunday October 13th.
