Benefits of a flat energy response in a radiation survey meters
I have read that the RaySafe 452 Radiation Survey Meter has a flat energy response and does not require correction factors. What does “a flat energy response” mean?
ALARA Rules for Radiation Protection
ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) regulatory guidelines were initially developed to protect workers from unnecessary exposure to nuclear radiation. Any medical professional who works with ionizing radiation should be familiar with the acronym ALARA.
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.
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
In engineering we are always looking towards the future and what new product we can create to help our customers. We don’t often take time to stop and appreciate what we’ve accomplished or the team that made it happen. First, the team is the heart of every project.
Visualizing scattered radiation
This blog discusses how interventional X-ray professionals use a variety of tools and techniques to minimize their radiation dose. Real-time Staff Dosimetry (RTSD) is a tool that measures exposure every second and visualizes information on a central display allowing users to get actionable quantitative information.
