If the first decade of the new millennium saw the establishment of a more solid foundation for the use of the Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) in medical dosimetry, the second decade saw the technique take root and become more widely used in clinical studies. Recent publications report not only characterization and feasibility studies of the OSL technique for various applications in radiotherapy and radiology, but also the practical use of OSL for postal audits, estimation of staff dose, in vivo dosimetry, dose verification and dose mapping studies. This review complements previous review papers and reports on the topic, providing a panorama of the new advances and applications in the..
