Interventional Radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology comprehensive of all minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed using radiological devices to obtain image guidance. The goal is to obtain a good image quality minimizing the radiation doses absorbed by patients and staff members. From a radioprotection point of view, the interventional procedures are considered potentially harmful for interventional radiologists and medical staff. Individual operators monitoring is very important and is performed via effective dose (whole body) and equivalent dose (hands, arms, legs, lens and thyroid). In this work we will present a proposal for an X-ray dosimeter prototype, capable of real-time measurement, packaged in a small form-factor, with wireless communication and no external power supply to be used for individual operators dosimetry for IR procedures.

Abstract

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology comprehensive of all minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed using radiological devices to obtain image guidance. The goal is to obtain a good image quality minimizing the radiation doses absorbed by patients and staff members. From a radioprotection point of view, the interventional procedures are considered potentially harmful for interventional radiologists and medical staff. Individual operators monitoring is very important and is performed via effective dose (whole body) and equivalent dose (hands, arms, legs, lens and thyroid). In this work we will present a proposal for an X-ray dosimeter prototype, capable of real-time measurement, packaged in a small form-factor, with wireless communication and no external power supply to be used for individual operators dosimetry for IR procedures.
