Medical dosimetrists ensure that radiation treatment promotes the most lethal radiation dose with the fewest side effects to the patient's healthy organs. When a radiation oncologist prescribes radiation to a tumor, a medical dosimetrist creates a plan to deliver the prescribed radiation dose.
Each year, the third Wednesday of August is designated as the day for celebrating medical dosimetry professionals around the world. The AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF MEDICAL DOSIMETRISTS recognizes the importance of the medical dosimetry profession and honors the contributions of all dosimetrists in the field.
