RADIATION FACILITY DESIGN

Whether you are looking to modify an existing shielding setup, construct a new room, or install a new machine, our team can assist every step of the way. We work directly with radiation safety officers, construction firms, and architects to provide site-specific, full-service radiation shielding design plans and radiation protection programs for your facility. Our experience covers a range of equipment including dental units, mobile units and CT and PET/CT, as well as high energy Linacs and Cyclotrons. We also work with different shielding material options including non-lead materials to meet regulatory guidelines and ALARA principles.

SHIELDING INTEGRITY TESTING

A robust shielding strategy will be put in place. In conjunction with a facility plan assessment for excellent radiation safety measures in order to avoid “cross-talk” between patients, sources, and various forms of instrumentation. It is ensured that regulatory compliance with absorbed dose limitations is met.

ACCEPTANCE TESTING

Our physics team will ensure your diagnostic and therapeutic radiation units are performing according to manufacturer specifications and regulatory requirements. We believe that proper documentation of baseline functioning of all newly installed equipment provides both the purchaser and the vendor with a high level of protection. These findings serve as a baseline for future imaging status comparisons and assessments

RADIATION PROTECTION POLICY DEVELOPMENT

Pinnacle Science Solutions provides services to assist with the development, documentation and implementation of the Radiation Safety Program. Every medical facility that uses ionizing radiation should have a radiation safety program for its protection, the protection of its staff and the protection of the patients. The radiation safety program is comprised of 4 components including a written program, training/education, documentation/record-keeping, and periodic review.

QUALITY CONTROL AND QUALITY ASSURANCE

Quality control tries to insure the process works on good inputs while quality assurance examines the output to see if the results look correct. The primary goal of a radiology quality assurance program is to ensure the consistent provision of prompt and accurate diagnosis of patients. To maintain the quality of diagnostic images; to minimize the radiation exposure to patient and staff; and to be cost-effective

RADIATION CONTAMINATION SURVEYS

Whenever unsealed radioactive materials (liquid solutions in vials, ampoules, test tubes) are handled (pipetted, transported, mixed, transferred) it is possible to contaminate laboratory benches, floors, and equipment. Every radiation-handling laboratory must be frequently surveyed to detect the presence of any radioactive contamination. Radiation surveys verify exposure rates and may be required in certain situations. These surveys are performed in order to determine the radiation levels in the vicinity of storage areas, work areas, waste containers, and adjacent unrestricted areas.
