Title Experiences with the inspection of X-ray diagnostic workplaces in the Radiohygienic Subcentre of Györ
Bibliographic information 1996, Vol.2, No.3, p.217-229. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract Results of radiation protection surveys carried out in workplaces using X-ray diagnostic equipment in the region of the Györ (Hungary) Radiohygienic Subcentre are summarized. Procedures investigated included general radiography, fluoroscopy, photofluorography and dental radiography. Inspections covered the availability and validity of licences, local rules of radiation protection, education and training, medical surveillance, and radiation monitoring. While radiation safety was fairly acceptable in the region surveyed, some deficiencies were identified.
