Recognizing the importance of accurate dosage in radiation therapy, the International Atomic Energy Agency initiated a progamme in dosimetry of ionizing radiations soon after its foundation. At that time neither national nor international absorbed dose standards existed, so a transportable absorbed dose calorimeter was designed and built in the Agency’s Laboratory as early as 1960. Being one of the first instruments of its type, this calorimeter was used for making absolute dose measurements and dose intercomparisons with other dose reference instruments. A few years later, the proposal was made to organize a dose intercomparison service by mail for radiations therapy departments.
