Active personal dosemeters: an overview

Research outputpeer-review


in modern radiation protection practices, active personal dosemeters (APDs) are becoming absolutely necessary operational tools for satisfying the ALARA principle. Despite their success, they are relatively new for individual monitoring of workers. This presentation will start by giving an overview of a EURADOS working group report on active personal dosemeters (APDs). In this report, a first status description of active personal dosemeters (APDs) and their implementation in European countries was presented. A catalogue of commercially available APDs will be discussed; The intercomarison was organized as a joint venture project between technical capabilities of all types of electronic personal dosimeters and available on the market. Finally some comments are made on the use of APSs a legal record of dose.
