During a short 1 hour meeting, about 20 BHPA members had a discussion about their experience with EBT 2/3 film dosimetry. The key ISP developers of EBT film dosimetry, Dr. Lewis and Dr. Micke, and the Belgian distributor Peter Dejonge also participated. Four centers provided some information about their solution and results with EBT2/3 film dosimetry (the presentations can be downloaded below)

The dosimetric accuracy reached by the Belgian centers is far from what the ISP developers claim to be possible (1% uncertainty on absolute dose). The EBT developers and Peter Dejonge proposed to organize a workshop to provide some training to the key centers. The UZ Brussel radiation therapy department is willing to host such a meeting somewhere during summer. Details will follow.
