Abstract : The AFRRI calibration and quality assurance program is laid out and described in detail. The protocols that form the foundation of this program are included for reference. The validation of a newer automated calibration system for ion chambers is also discussed. It is hoped that this document might be of use and interest to anyone who is instituting, reviewing, or modifying a calibration and quality assurance program.
