Computerised glow curve deconvolution (CGCD) can be used to retrieve dosimetric information from glow curves distorted by various irregularities. These may include reader malfunction, abnormal background arising from various sources and other system malfunctions. This paper illustrates how the dosimetric information can be retrieved from these irregular glow curves. The accuracy of the retrieved information depends, of course, on the extent of the damage to the glow curve. In LiF:Mg,Ti (TLD-100) for example, peaks 4 + 5 (the dosimetric peaks) are observed over the temperature range of 400 K-500 K, i.e. 100 degrees Kelvin. Even for distortions over 20 K, i.e. 20% of the temperature range, the dosimetric information can be retrieved to an accuracy of approximately 1%.
