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...

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...
Conference Paper
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...

... Although the current ORBB already captures a substantial amount of data, new technologies may still be included in future implementations. Personal real-time dosimetry systems [36][37][38][39] actively measure and report team members' radiation exposure throughout the procedure, allowing team members to reflect on their actual exposure and adjust their behaviours accordingly. However it may also aid assessors to pinpoint specific instances of high dose, requiring more detailed analysis using the ORBB. ...
