Ionising Radiation Equipment Audit
GLOSRAD can perform critical examinations, commissioning and acceptance tests and routine performance checks that are required to be carried out on diagnostic x-ray equipment and Gamma cameras. A radiation protection survey carried out on site by ourselves provides an independent assessment of all aspects of ionising radiation equipment performance and safety and would typically include:
Assessment of room shielding and protective equipment.
For x-ray sets – measurement of tube output, kilovoltage, tube filtration, focal spot size, timer function, beam alignment and tube radiation leakage to assess compliance with legislation. Where applicable, Automatic Exposure Control systems, Dose Area Product meters, Image Intensifiers and digital imaging systems can also be assessed.
For Gamma cameras – measurement of calibration set-up, energy resolution, uniformity of response, spatial linearity, count rate capacity, sensitivity and shield leakage.
