Extremity (Ring) TLD

 The ProxRing is a single-element extremity ring (one natural lithium borate element) using the Panasonic UD807 TLD. The extremity ring TLD is usable   to monitor extremity dose (hands and arms) in Beta, Gamma, and X-Ray Radiation Fields. The Extremity Ring TLD works in a similar way to that of  radiation badges.

The two-piece plastic ring enclosure can be cold-sterilized and is available in three sizes to comfortably fit any individual. The ring’s edges are smoothed for comfort and to reduce the risk of tearing surgical gloves. It comes printed with the user’s name, wear period, account code, and the element serial number.
