Glossary

 

Deep Dose Equivalent (DDE): The dose equivalent at a tissue depth of 1 cm (1000mg/cm2) which applies to external whole body exposure.

Extremity: Any part of the body including the hand, elbow, arm below the elbow, foot, knee and leg below the knee.

Lens Dose Equivalent (LDE): The dose equivalent at a tissue depth of 0.3 cm (300mg/cm2) which applies to the external exposure of the lens of the eye.

Member Of The Public: A person who does not receive an occupational dose while working and are only exposed during elected radiation procedures.

Occupational Dose: The dose of ionizing radiation received by a person at work, where assigned duties involve exposure to ionizing radiation or radioactive materials.

Shallow Dose Equivalent (SDE): The dose equivalent at a tissue depth of 0.007 cm (7mg/cm2) which applies to external exposure of the skin of the whole body or the skin of an extremity.

Whole Body: The parts of the body comprising the head, the trunk of the body, arms above the elbow and legs above the knee.

A Dosimeter measures a person’s exposure to radiation in occupational settings, and is sometimes called a “badge” or “X-ray badge”. There are a number of different kinds of dosimeters. The types we use are called thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs), which contain filters and crystals to determine the type and amount of radiation received (X-ray, gamma, beta, or neutron). As the dosimeter is exposed to radiation, energy is deposited in the crystals within the dosimeter. During processing, the crystals are heated and energy is released in the form of light and a glow curve is captured. The data is passed through an algorithm which is used to determine the type of received radiation and calculate the worker’s occupational exposure.
