Radiation Monitoring Devices for Healthcare Workers

radiation monitoring

Radiation is used in digital radiographic imaging departments to diagnose and treat a vast number of medical conditions. The benefits of radiation in diagnostic imaging are beyond dispute, but ionizing radiation can be harmful to the human body. For this reason, radiation monitoring devices are critical. A number of detection devices have been developed to calculate the radiation exposure received by an individual and to detect the amount of radiation present in the environment or on surfaces (contamination).

10 Devices to detect and monitor radiation


Ionizing radiation can not be directly detected with the human senses. So we have developed many ways to detect it. Some devices work best for specific types of sources and purposes. Many dosimeters are now classified as self-reading and/or alarming devices. These instruments allow the user to select early warning and alarms for the amount of exposure that they receive and also to be warned of significantly higher than expected radiation levels. They also have digital read outs for instant access to the exposure monitoring data. These devices can also be linked electronically to a database or software program to maintain records and configure the devices.
