Over the past few years, numerous Accreditation Bodies, Regulatory Agencies, and State Regulations have implemented requirements for Radiation Safety Surveys following installation or modification to x-ray rooms. The objective of this session is to review best practices in performing radiation safety surveys for both Therapy and Diagnostic installations, as well as a review of appropriate survey instruments.
This session will be appropriate for both therapy and imaging physicists who are looking to increase their working knowledge of radiation safety surveys.
- 1.Identify Appropriate Survey Meters for Radiation Safety Surveys
- 2.Develop best practices for Radiation Safety Surveys for Therapy units that include common areas of concern.
- 3.Develop best practices for Radiation Safety Surveys of Diagnostic and Nuclear Medicine rooms.
- 4.Identify acceptable dose levels and the factors that affect the calculations associated with performing Radiation Safety Surveys.
