Interventional radiologists and staff members are frequently exposed to protracted and fractionated low doses of ionizing radiation due to diffused X-ray radiation. The authors propose a novel approach to monitor on line staff during their interventions by using a device based on an Active Pixel Sensor developed for tracking applications. Two different photodiode configurations have been tested in standard Interventional Radiology working conditions.

Abstract

Interventional radiologists and staff members are frequently exposed to protracted and fractionated low doses of ionizing radiation due to diffused X-ray radiation. The authors propose a novel approach to monitor on line staff during their interventions by using a device based on an Active Pixel Sensor developed for tracking applications. Two different photodiode configurations have been tested in standard Interventional Radiology working conditions. Both options have demonstrated the capability to measure the photon flux and the energy flux to a sufficient degree of uncertainty.
