Abstract

LEYTON L, Fernando et al. APPLICATION OF A RADIOMETRIC INVENTORY PROTOCOL IN RADIODIAGNOSTICS FACILITIES. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.4, pp.213-217. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082007000400007.

A radiometric study was carried out in two Radiodiagnostic Units, with seven rooms being assessed. Methodology of the Radiodiagnostics Quality Control Protocol ARCAL XLIX (Cooperation Agreement for the Promotion of Nuclear Science and Technology in Latin America and the Caribbean) of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) [1] was used. From radiation protection viewpoint, effective dose rates on surface for different relevant positions were calculated.The eigthy-five percent (85%) of assessed positions showed effective dose rates within limit values established in the ARCAL XLIX Protocol. Nevertheless, occupationally-exposed personnel (OEP) placed at position A (controlled area)[2] -one meter distant from the phantom- was found to be exceeding by 7 the ARCAL XLIX advised values

Keywords : Occupationally-exposed personnel (OEP); Radiation protection; Radiodiagnostic Units.
