Guidance on the Personal Monitoring Requirements for Personnel Working in Healthcare
Published by Institute of Physics Publishing : November 2018: Series: IPEM-IOP Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology
Arrangements for personal monitoring have evolved as dose limits and practices using radiation have developed. Therefore, new approaches involving more personal dosimetry are required, and methods are needed that can be used to predict probable dose levels so that risk assessments can be prepared to determine the level of dose monitoring for individual staff members. The authors set out recommendations designed to help radiation protection practitioners and healthcare workers assess exposure levels for personnel and determine monitoring requirements based on established rules. This book is essential reading for medical physicists in radiation protection, diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, as well as radiographers and technologists due to changes in global dosimetry requirements. Additionally, it presents guidelines for medical physicists and others using radiation.
