Dose resolution, DΔp, is becoming a common method for characterizing the performance of a gel dosimeter. In this note we examine how the goodness of fit of the calibration function affects DΔp and show that its inclusion in the calculation of DΔp is essential to avoid overestimating the performance of the gel.
