Thermoluminescent (TL) dosimeters have become a versatile system of dosimeters for assessment of dose in clinical applications of ionizing radiation. The advantages of TL dosimeters include high sensitivity, miniature size, tissue equivalence, low fading, re-usability and linear dose response. Being a passive device, TL dosimetry by mail provides an easy way for intercomaparison of dose in different institutions. This paper elucidates applications of TLD in some of the conventional and emerging fields of medical applications in radio diagnosis, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy, including neutron.
