Welcome to the Medical Dosimetry Program at UW-L


What is Medical Dosimetry?  The field of Medical Dosimetry involves the measurement and calculation of dose for the treatment of cancer patients.  Dosimetrists use their knowledge of physics, anatomy, and radiobiology to develop an optimal arrangement of radiation portals to spare normal and radiosensitive tissues while applying a prescribed dose to the targeted disease volume.
