First, the effective energy of the radiation dose on the radiation badge, a thermoluminescent dosimeter, was greater than the maximum energy of the field medical x-ray system.
The study used the thermoluminescent dosimeter readings of 26 workers on a cardiovascular catherization unit.
Uncertainties in dose estimates in the worker cohorts are caused by sampling variation in measurements from film badges and thermoluminescent dosimeters, adjustments made to doses below the limit of detection, and attenuation of externally measured dose by shielding (Gilbert 1998; Gilbert and Fix 1995).
Thermoluminescent dosimeter for monitoring of the environment around nuclear power plants.
In addition, the TASL CR39 can be worn with a thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD), optimizing neutron evaluation capabilities by assessing the results of the two separate technologies.
Landauer expects these new technologies will combine the best features of current methods for monitoring personnel radiation exposure, namely photographic film and thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD), as well as offer a number of distinct advantages.
