A technique for measuring the microscopic distribution of energy, useful with different types of radiation. Microdosimetry provides the scientific underpinnings for the measurement of radiation. It is vitally important to both radiation therapy and radiation protection. The prefix "micro-" is derived from the Greek "mikros" meaning small. It diminishes whatever it precedes.
