10 Things to Consider When Making a Purchase
Before you buy calibration equipment, consider how a manufacturer performs in the following 10 criteria: quality, products, innovation, enduring, customer, global, resources, history, integrity, community.
The Making of the RaySafe 452
Q&A with Business Development Manager, Ed Brand & Product Manager, Magnus Smith.
Why you see deviating readings
Some insights into why you see deviating readings between your 451P and 452.
451P to 452 Upgrade
Are you still hanging onto your RaySafe 451P? If so, it may be time for an upgrade. Here are 5 reasons why you should take advantage of the new technology that the RaySafe 452 Radiation Survey Meter has to offer.
How to take control
During COVID-19, many of us are trying to build new skills as we spend more time indoors. For this reason, we have put together some free online learning resources.
Cleaning your RaySafe Products
Here are a few guidelines for how you may disinfect your RaySafe products safely.

Mammography Measurements Using the RaySafe X2
Anders Fransson, Training & Product Specialist at RaySafe, held a webinar showing how the RaySafe X2 system simplifies mammography radiation measurements such as dose, HVL, and kV on all commercially available mammography machines.
A Brief History Lesson from RaySafe
Q&A with Ed Brand - learn how X-ray imaging has evolved and how to test this kind of equipment.
Perspective, passion, a ferry and giving back time with X-ray test equipment
We are doing a series of open letters from the RaySafe Research and Development, and Engineering teams because they have a slightly different perspective.
Benefits of a flat energy response in a radiation survey meter
A flat energy response means that the survey meter does not give an under- or over-representation of the measured dose at certain energies.
ALARA Rules for Radiation Protection
ALARA is an familiar industry term every medical professional should know and practice. This brief blog post covers the basics of the ALARA principle, and how the RaySafe i3 Real-time dosimeter can help monitor radiation exposure.
Why Real-time Dosimetry is Important
Personal protection equipment (PPE) has been available for years to help protect medical professionals against ionizing radiation. Most of the time, it consists of heavy protection garments and shields. While these are effective, being able to monitor radiation exposure in real time takes protection to a whole new level.
Personal Safety When Working with Ionizing Radiation
Personal radiation safety is paramount within interventional X-ray. Every activity should be planned to minimize unnecessary radiation exposure, as physicians and other staff members are in the room with the patient and run the risk of continued exposure to radiation.
A face-lift, a team, customers' pain, and a vision
We recently launched the RaySafe 452 Survey Meter, a survey meter that is as versatile as our customers, allowing them to measure a variety of applications with a single device.
Visualizing scattered radiation
As touched upon in the previous post, interventional X-ray professionals have a number of tools and techniques at their disposal, which they can use to minimize their radiation dose.
How Aurora West Allis Medical Center reduced medical radiation risks with RTSD
Minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of disease has revolutionized healthcare and continues to grow rapidly. For good reason, as interventional X-ray and related techniques have brought about safer and more effective treatments for a number of diseases, compared to what was available just a few decades ago.
Will The Joint Commission regulation changes make X-ray QA more time-consuming?
Annual equipment checks to ensure fluoroscopy X-ray units are working correctly is one of the revisions by The Joint Commission elements of performance (Eps). Hospitals providing fluoroscopy services will need to adhere to this new, revised standard as of January 1, 2019.
Diagnostic imaging test equipment. Why? When? What?
We’ve found that many of us are facing similar issues and are asking questions. We put together a few of those questions and the answers to them from one of our product experts. Look for similar blogs in the future and be sure to send us your thoughts on issues.
ALARA - Keeping Radiation Exposure to a Minimum
When working with ionizing radiation or radioactive materials, it is a federal regulatory requirement that all reasonable efforts be made to maintain exposure to ionizing radiation as far below the dose limits as practical. ALARA translates as "As Low As Reasonably Achievable" and not only needs to be an integral part of all tasks that involve the use of radiation or radioactive materials but also used as the guiding principle to stay consistent with the purpose for which the activity is undertaken.
Understanding Medical Radiation
A new website established by Siemens Healthcare provides comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand, information about radiation in medical imaging.

Unfors RaySafe supports the EuroSafe Imaging Campaign in its aim to promote quality and safety in medical imaging by joining forces with various stakeholders.
Initiative to Reduce Unnecessary Radiation Exposure from Medical Imaging
A White Paper published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announces a cooperative Initiative to Reduce Unnecessary Radiation Exposure from Medical Imaging of FDA and other parties.
Image Wisely® in Adult Imaging
Image Wisely® is a is a program designed to address concerns about the surge of public exposure to ionizing radiation from medical imaging.
EuroSafe Imaging Campaign Poster
Unfors RaySafe strongly supports the ESR’s EuroSafe Imaging Campaign in its aim to raise awareness about the importance of radiation safety across Europe.
Radiation Protection of Patients
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is engaged to inform about the safe use of ioning radiation in medicine and to increase radiation protection of patients.
RaySafe provides even more accuracy to solid state detectors.
