Three principles of radiation protection
X-rays are attenuated in inverse proportion to the square of the distance. In other words, it is important for you to immediately move away when there is a risk of X-ray leakage or a risk of exposure to radiation. Secure an area of sufficient distance from the source of X-rays, and restrict access to only essential personnel by surrounding the system unit with rope or by placing stickers on the floor.
Method for measuring radiation: Survey meters and pocket dosimeters are used to monitor X-ray dose.
Radiation dose is measured by pointing the tip of the detector toward the location you want to measure.
Pocket dosimeters are used by placing them in the user's pocket (in the chest/abdomen area). They indicate how much radiation an individual receives at any time.
X-rays are attenuated as they pass through substances. The amount of attenuation depends on the substance. For substances of the same thickness, heavy metals with large atomic numbers have a higher shielding effect. For substances with the same specific gravity, the substance with the greater thickness has a higher shielding effect. Lead is commonly used as a shield.
