Radiation shielding needs for industrial radiography rooms depend on many variables such as patient workload, size of room, adjacent area use and status and other concerns.
HPNW will verify all clinical and design parameters so that the recommended radiation shielding is specifically designed for the room. NCRP Guidelines and restrictive allowable dose limits are used to ensure a safe working environment and regulatory compliance.
* Please note that we cannot complete the shielding reports until all information has been received and is accurate.
It is the responsibility of the facility to ensure that radiation levels in adjacent areas are acceptably low. This is accomplished by completing a shielding evaluation.
Shielding calculations can be done for any source or combination of radiation sources.
Industrial radiography rooms often use lead, concrete, CMU blocks or a combination of materials for shielding.
