Abstract:The work package two of the ORAMED project—Collaborative Project (2008-2011) supported by the European Commission within its seventh Framework Programme—is devoted to the study of the eye lens dosimetry. A first approach is to implement the use of Hp(3) by providing new sets of conversion coefficients and well suited calibration and type test procedures. This approach is presented in other papers in the proceedings of this conference. Taking into account that the eye lens is an organ close to the surface of the body, another approach would be to directly estimate the absorbed dose to the eye lens, Dlens,est through a special calibration procedure although this quantity is not directly measurable. This paper is a methodological paper that tries to identify the critical aspects of a dosimetry in terms of Dlens.
