B. Module Overview
The various types of personnel monitoring devices and the employee's responsibilities
concerning each will be discussed.
C. Objectives Review
External exposure results from radiation that comes from radioactive material outside of the
body. A "personnel dosimeter" is a device used to measure external dose. Internal dose is
radiation that comes from radioactive material within the body. The whole body counter,
chest counter, and bioassay sampling are methods for measuring internal dose.
Personnel monitoring for radiation dose involves assessing exposure due to external sources
and internal sources.
A. External Dosimetry
A personnel dosimeter is a device used to measure radiation dose. Different types of
are needed. The following information identifies the different types used at this facility.
