TempNet® Nuclear Medicine – Radiation monitoring made safer
When working with radioactive substance, exposure is always a risk. With the TempNet® Nuclear Medicine system, monitoring exposure and contamination can be done easily and efficiently. The system can be used throughout the life of radiopharmaceuticals from preparation to storage to the eventual patient treatment phase, as well as the monitoring of radioactive waste.
The Nuclear Medicine system is a combination of GAM dosimeters, hand-foot-monitors and contamination probes. These radiation measuring devices automatically transfer data into the TempNet® Cloud platform, where all data can be viewed immediately. Preset alerts notify personnel through email/SMS or alarm beacons if radiation limits are breached, so they will know to act accordingly.
The dosimeter measures, for example, a radioiodine patient’s dose rate automatically once per minute, giving staff access to accurate data. This means the chief physicist, can calculate patient discharge times correctly, which has proven to shorten patient isolation times by 1-2 days per patient. Additionally, the GAM device enhances staff safety through remote measuring, helping to keep radiation exposure as low as reasonably practicable.
TempNet® is a modular solution that is easy to integrate with other systems, so you can benefit from your existing monitoring arrangements by linking them with the TempNet® Cloud. We also offer additional monitoring capabilities for e.g. isotope cleanrooms and camera rooms (temperature, relative humidity, etc.).
Dose and dose rate
Portable automatic dosimeters make measuring dose and dose rate easy, accurate and safe.
All contamination monitoring made easy with hand-foot monitors and mobile probes.
“We monitor dose range in radiopharmaceutical preparation and utilization rooms, as well as in patient rooms during isolation of patients treated with radioactive iodine. Real-time remote radiation monitoring reduces staff exposure to radiation and helps verify that treatment has been administered as planned. In addition, it enables optimized discharge times for patients, ultimately leading to cost savings. Monthly reports with all measured data are sent automatically by email to the responsible person. Manual recordkeeping and additional checkups are no longer necessary.”
