Abstract

The purpose of this project is to determine if the radiation absorbed dose to nurses, technicians and doctors are changed in active x-ray rooms that uses real-time radiation dose data displayed to them. The main idea is that if the information is available and visible, that it will help induce better safety behaviors. This is assessed using the recorded exposure data from the devices worn by the personnel in real day-to-day operations of the radiology department of a hospital.
