Radiation Shielding Evaluations
Required Information to Conduct an Evaluation
In order to accurately calculate the amount of shielding materials necessary to provide a safe environment around radiation producing equipment, we need specific information about your equipment power, exam room layout, building floor plan and the number of patients who will have exams performed. Shielding evaluations usually require a collaborative effort between radiology managers, architects, building maintenance staff and physicists to accurately calculate the correct shielding.
We have developed a comprehensive list of information which we need to complete a Radiation Shielding Evaluation. Please download and review the Radiation Evaluation: Required Information form to start compiling all the data and documentation needed.
