The system utilizes a triple-layered scintillation detector and a high-speed digital pulse processor to measure radiation energy-deposition events and calculate radiation dose to the skin surface and to skin tissue at three depths from ionizing radiation emissions; these emissions are the result of radioactive contamination on the skin, or on material above the skin.
Features & Benefits
Background of Invention
Oregon State University is seeking a company interested in the manufacture and commercialization of a state-of-the-art digitally controlled scintillation device designed specifically for the measurement of real-time-skin-contamination radiation dose simultaneously at several depths in skin.
A prototype for this technology has been developed and successfully tested. US Patent Number: 7,964,848
