Reference Air Kerma Rate and Air Kerma Strength

In 1985, the ICRU Report 385 defined the reference air kerma rate as an emission specification quantity for y -rays emitting brachytherapy sources. This was first recommended by the French Committee for the Measurement of Ionising Radiation in 19836 then by the British Committee on Radiation Units and Measurements in 19847 and has been widely established in Europe since the end of the 1980s. The reference air kerma rate of a source is defined as the air kerma rate in air at a reference distance...
