- n. The accurate measurement of the doses of medicines.
- n. A system of therapeutics in which treatment is directed chiefly toward the symptoms and consists in the administration of alkaloids in the form of granules at definite intervals, each granule containing a single dose of the remedy of proper amount for administration at the prescribed interval.

- n. measuring the dose of radiation emitted by a radioactive source
Wearing a dosimetry badge on his shirt to monitor his own exposure to radiation, he stopped his truck at a spot overlooking a slope that will be used to store waste "tailings," the 91.5% of the mine's output that will be unusable.
Comparisons of spore dosimetry and spectral photometry of solar-UV radiation at four sites in Japan and Europe.
Franz Urbach directed the Physikalische Laboratorium and worked on radium dosimetry and instrumentation from 1932 to 1934 when Hilda Fonovits-Smereker succeeded him. 74 Through his connections to Tandler and the physicians at the hospital in Lainz, Meyer offered both of them the chance to cross the scientific boundary between physics and medicine, bringing their expertise in instrumentation and experimentation from the Radium Institute to the municipal hospital.
His device, the chromoradiometer, attracted the interest of the international community of physicians and was tried as a dosimetry apparatus for radium as well.
They were forced to learn the physics of the new element, to study the way radiation is absorbed by the human body and its dosimetry, and to find the appropriate ways to measure it.
In 1902, Antoine Beclère, an outstanding pioneer of radiology in France, visited Holzknecht in Vienna to discuss dosimetry issues.
As the directors of the Vivarium revealed in their plan, the proposed laboratory would function as the regulator for the supplies, the dosimetry, and the handling and shipment of radium in Austrian hospitals. 91 It was one thing for the scientists to require a new research laboratory and it was quite another to envision themselves as the regulators of radium supplies in the hospitals of the entire country.
He was not a great scientist, but he was a very nice man and had achieved a lot for the dosimetry of medical preparations and was not always acknowledged.
Combining radioactivity and medicine, the physicists crossed the boundary of their expertise and provided scientific support to doctors over issues of radium dosimetry.
He seemed impressed about all the classes in nuclear chemistry, nuclear physics, dosimetry and radiation sciences.
