Q: What are your experiences with RaySafe i2?
A: It is the first time that a system offers an effective possibility to set up radiation protection instructions for employees in such a way that they show long term success. It provides the employees with a real-time insight about their radiation exposure shown in an easy way as red, yellow and green bars. We all know that doubling the distance to the radiation source may reduce radiation exposure fourfould. But only a real-time visualization of this fact can raise awareness.
Q: Why is it that difficult to create awareness?
A: Particular measuring devices are needed to measure radiation, as it can’t be detected by the human senses.
The theoretical knowledge which has been facilitated in radiation protection instructions may fade over time. That’s why it is extremely important that a radiation protection specialist supervises the usage of real-time dosimeters and the interpretation of the measured results.
Q: Do you use other products of Unfors RaySafe in the field?
A: We use RaySafe Xi to meet the requirements of acceptance tests in diagnostic radiology, particularly in mammography. The instrument provides accurate results, is easy to use and has PTB approval. The data are shown in a clear way by the intuitive user interface and can be exported to Excel very easily.
