An important missing piece in the medical robotics literature is the lack of systematic methods to quantitatively compare different manipulator designs, and to evaluate kinematic configurations chosen for telesurgical manipulators in application-critical tasks. Such a quantitative method is especially important during design stage to make an informed(More)
The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) carries out an intercomparison programme for individual monitoring every 5 years. The objective is to acquire valuable information on the performance of the dosimetry systems of the participating Spanish approved dosimetry services and to assess precision and accuracy as quality indicators of overall dosimetry(More)
This study analyses new trends of a set of 12 electronic personal dosemeters in order to gain an overview of their main advantages and limitations. Physical characteristics and radiological, mechanical and environmental performance were tested according to IEC-61526 Standard requirements. The study highlights the different behaviour of the selected(More)
The Spanish National Dose Registry (BDN) is the Nuclear Safety Council's (CSN) national database of occupational exposure to radiation. Each month BDN receives records of individual external doses from approved dosimetry services. The dose records include information regarding the occupational activities of exposed workers. The dose information and the(More)
