EORTC - IROC Houston OSLD/TLD Monitoring Program



The IROC Houstonís fee for the OSLD/TLD service will be US$ 300 for shipping, handling and processing and US$ 110 for each additional beam measured (either photon or electron) included in the same OSLD/TLD shipment.

Therefore, the fee for an institution wishing to measure 3 photon beams and 3 electron beams will be US$ 300 + (5 x US$ 100) = US$ 800. An appropriately sized OSLD/TLD block will be provided for each photon energy requested and a block with OSLD/TLD at depths corresponding approximately to d-max and d-80 will be provided for each electron energy to allow an estimate of percent depth dose.

If an audit results in a beam(s) falling outside the EORTC acceptance criteria (+/- 5%), the institution will be contacted and provided the option of repeating the audit for the problematic beam(s) at the same cost formula stated above.

Note that the IROC Houstonís fee includes the cost of shipping round-trip plus handling charges.
