Abstract : Dosimetry, as a subset of research in electromagnetic (EM) bioeffects, has made such rapid progress during the last decade that many scientific investigators are unaware of the present state-of-art. As a result, inadequate utilization of available technology is seen in much research currently in progress. Such research, conducted in the absence of sound dosimetry design, lacks credibility. This study provides a usable orientation in present and future dosimetric technology through a documentation of the swift progress in this area since 1969. The information contained in this report can assist researchers in making full use of the latest dosimetric techniques and devices to quantitatively establish the existence of observed effects.
