Abstract: Various developmental stages of radiochromic dosimetry in kGy to mGy range depending on its applications in radiation processing industries, radiological safety, medical sciences, nuclear or dirty bomb exposition and radiation accident have been described. Leuco dyes, pH sensitive dye with halogen containing compound and radiation induced solid state polymerization are the basic chemical methods presently in use for radiochromic techniques. The present status including achievements, limitations and R&D required for further improvements of accurate and precision measurements has also been highlighted. The reader system for mapping of radiation distributions in patient dosimetry and accurate measurements of personal doses in any nuclear or radiological accident scenario are also elaborated.
