ChargeThe primary goal of the working group is to provide an ongoing review of requirements for updating external beam reference dosimetry protocols and providing guidance on implementation of these protocols by end users and for purposes of improving the quality of calibrations conducted by the network of ADCLs.  This includes reviewing experimental and calculated data sets of beam quality conversion factors and ion chamber calibration coefficients. The WG will work closely with the AAPM ion chamber registry working group (WGICR) to ensure consistency with published protocols and the data available through the ion chamber registry, once established.The WG will also review other calibration issues related to external beam reference dosimetry with the intention of ensuring quality improvement in reference dose determination in the radiation therapy clinic.
