Pros and Cons of Radiation Survey Meter Technologies
RaySafe Radiation Survey Meter
Mammography Measurements Using the RaySafe X2
“Mammography machines, compared to other x-ray diagnostic imaging machines, face some additional challenges when it comes to non-invasive measurements. The digital revolution has resulted in a huge variety of target filter combinations and additional acquisition modes.
Perspective, passion, a ferry and giving back time with X-ray test equipment
We are excited to be doing a series of open letters from the RaySafe Research and Development, and Engineering teams. They are the brains behind radiation measu
Benefits of a flat energy response in a radiation survey meter
How does the energy response of a radiation survey meter impact measurement results and work-flow?
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.
How Aurora West Allis Medical Center reduced medical radiation risks with RTSD
Will The Joint Commission regulation changes make X-ray QA more time-consuming?
Diagnostic imaging test equipment. Why? When? What?
ALARA - Keeping Radiation Exposure to a Minimum
Understanding Medical Radiation
A new website established by Siemens Healthcare provides comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand, information about radiation in medical imaging.
EuroSafe Imaging Campaign
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 which aims at:
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.
The goal of the program is to increase radiation safety in adult medical imaging.

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.
