Radiation dosimetry in the fields of health physics and radiation protection is the measurement, calculation and assessment of the ionizing radiation dose absorbed by an object, usually the human body. This applies both internally, due to ingested or inhaled radioactive substances, or externally due to irradiation by sources of radiation.

All ionizing radiations, whether natural or artificial, constitute a hazard. It is assumed that the greater the radiation dose to which the population is exposed, the greater the hazard.
The accurate measurement of radiation dose received by the population is therefore important in trying to quantify the hazard. PRINCIPLES OF RADIATION DOSIMETRY AND RADIATION THERAPY INTRODUCTION Cancer is one of the dreadful diseases and it s a burgeoning health problem globally.
