Frequently Asked Questions

Find vet dosimeter badge answers

We’ve answered common veterinary radiation monitoring questions below, and you can always call us for live help.
What do dosimetry badges do? 

Veterinary practices may utilize dosimetry badges to measure radiation used during the imaging process when diagnosing and treating animals. Dosimetry badges help ensure safety, comply with regulations, identify high-risk areas, and enable individuals to protect themselves.

Locate the label on your radiation-emitting device to determine the type of radiation used in your office. In veterinary offices, this typically includes imaging devices and radiation therapy devices.

Some states may have additional radiation monitoring requirements in addition the federal guidelines. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, please consult the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s list of NRC and Agreement States.

Feeling overwhelmed? We can help. Reach out to RDC directly and we’ll walk you through our personalized recommendations to keep your entire team safe.

In addition to OSL or TLD whole body radiation badges, veterinarians, vet techs, and other support staff may also use extremity badges (wrist or ring) and/or fetal monitors. Employees should consult the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission for an exhaustive list of conditions requiring individual monitoring of external and internal occupational dose.

Area monitors measure radiation exposure at or near radiation sources in veterinary offices. We recommend using an area monitor in addition to personnel monitoring to monitor possible radiation exposure to employees who may not be provided a whole body badge (such as front office staff), or members of the public.

Area monitoring can help protect personnel and the public from an adverse amount of radiation in veterinary settings during imaging and radiation therapy sessions.
