Medical Dosimetry Jobs
Medical Dosimetrists carefully calculate the dose of radiation to make sure the tumor gets enough radiation. They develop a number of treatment plans that can best destroy the tumor while sparing the normal tissues. Many of these treatment plans are very complex. Dosimetrists work with the doctor and the medical physicist to choose the treatment plan that is just right for each patient. The Medical Dosimetrist is a member of the radiation oncology treatment and planning team. Dosimetrists have the expertise to measure and generate radiation dose distributions and calculations under the direct supervision of the radiation physicist and the radiation oncologist. Job duties of a Dosimetrist may include:
- Performing computations to deliver a prescribed dose to a defined tumor volume
- Supervising and/or assist in the preparation of beam modifying devices and treatment aids necessary to carry out the planned treatment
- Assisting the radiation physicist in quality assurance and radiation protection programs when necessary
- Assisting in brachytherapy implants, including calculation of doses
- Relaying information between the oncologist, physics department, and the treating therapists
- Some teaching of dosimetry to students, if necessary
- Monitoring changes/updates within the profession
