Using Dose Weighting To Reduce Your Reported Dose From X-ray Exposure

The default method of measuring radiation exposure is to be as conservative as possible. What this means is that we make assumptions that error on the side of overestimating the dose. Dosimeters are used in a way that measures the highest dose point on an individual and assign that dose to the whole person. This […]

Referral Fees!

What to do with the Control Dosimeter sent with your Radiation Badges

Free Control Dosimeters are sent with shipments of radiation badges.  Control dosimeters measure background radiation at your location and in the mail.   In the ideal world, radiation badges are parked right next to the Control Dosimeters when not in use.  That’s how it’s done at many Nuclear Stations, but even some of them let […]
