Within medical facilities, the frequent handling of radioactive sources can cause surfaces and people to become contaminated by these sources. It is therefore important to be able to detect this contamination to act quickly and limit any exposure.
Using unsealed radioactive sources means that laboratory work surfaces and at-risk zones in medical facilities are often subject to contamination. Handling unsealed sources literally means that equipment, people and the environment are at a high risk of contamination.
This invisible contamination can then be spread outside of handling areas if it is not properly controlled. This can lead to serious health risks for medical personnel and patients. The MiniTRACE CSDF can check whether a person or a surface has become contaminated, so exposure can be limited and quick action can be taken where the risk is high.
