Between 1983 and 2004, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (UK MOD) assessed photon and beta doses using the Panasonic UD803AS thermoluminescent dosemeter (TLD). The Panasonic UD803AS dosemeter is also sensitive to neutrons, and the aim of the present study was to ascertain whether dose assessments made using the Panasonic UD803AS TLD in UK MOD radiation(More)
An assessment of X-ray protective gloves is reported which demonstrates that a significant degree of protection from X-ray exposure can be offered by these gloves. The need for such protection, together with the method of assessment is discussed. It is recommended that X-ray protective gloves are considered when undertaking image intensifier work.
The 2011 International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) statement on tissue reactions suggested a significant reduction in the threshold dose for radiation induced cataracts. This, combined with the potential for a long delay between exposure and cataract diagnosis, may result in an increased requirement to evaluate eye dose from past exposures(More)
