How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

A statistical pilot study was retrospectively performed to analyze potential changes in occupational radiation exposures to Interventional Radiology (IR) staff at Lawrence General Hospital after implementation of the i2 Active Radiation Dosimetry System (Unfors RaySafe Inc, 6045 Cochran Road Cleveland, OH 44139- 3302). In this study, the monthly OS...
Background: Immediately after a radiological dispersion event or nuclear disaster, a method is needed to quickly assay the large amount of people for internal contamination. While no such method exists presently, we propose to adapt a Nuclear Medicine Gamma Camera and use internal dosimetric calculations to enable the high-throughput screening of u...
Background: Radiation exposures to Interventional Radiology (IR) staff continues to increase as the use of IR increases. To address this, Lawrence General Hospital (LGH) has incorporated the i2 active dosimetry system (RaySafe, Hopkington MA) into their IR department. This system monitors personnel exposures and displays them in real-time on the IR...
Immediately after a radiologist dispersion event or nuclear disaster, a method is needed to quickly assay a large number of people for internal contamination. While no such method exists presently, we propose to adapt a Nuclear Medicine Gamma Camera and use internal dosimetric calculations to enable the high-throughput screening of urine bioassay s...
Because of continual increases in the rate of Interventional Radiology (IR) procedures, Lawrence General Hospital (LGH), Lawrence, MA, has incorporated the RaySafe i2 real-time dose monitoring system (RaySafe, Hopkinton MA) into their radiation safety program. This system monitors and displays personnel exposures in real-time on the IR screen durin...
The MCNP5 radiation transport code was used to quantify changes in the absorbed dose conversion factor for LiF, Al2O3, and silicon-based electronic dosimeters calibrated in-air using standard techniques and summarily used to measure absorbed dose to water when placed in a water phantom. A mono-energetic photon source was modeled at energies between...
