Abstract:

The primary objective of mixed-field neutrongamma radiation dosimetry in canine irradiation experiments conducted at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute AFRRI is to determine the absorbed midline tissue dose MLT at the region of interest in the canine. A dose conversion factor DCF can be applied to free-in-air FIA dose measurements to estimate the MLT doses to canines. This report is a summary of the measured DCFs that were used to determine the MLT doses in canines at AFRRI from 1979 to 1992.
