Under Technology License Agreement with CSIR - AMPRI (Advanced Materials and Processes Research Institute), Bhopal and H&R JOHNSON (India) introduced the “Johnson Endura Radiation Shielding Tile”( in small font)
Radiation Shielding Tile
Johnson Endura Radiation shielding tile (RST) is special product made with superior quality high density radiation shielding raw materials. The invisible high energy X - rays can penetrate through the body and can pose radiation hazards. These ionizing radiations are used in hospitals, industries, research centers etc., for various useful applications. It is important to protect the public, patients and the environment from the unnecessary exposure to such harmful ionizing radiations. Discovered more than 100 years ago, X-rays continues to play an important role in patient care, are used to look inside the body to diagnose many ailments and are also used in cancer treatments-Radiotherapy, Interventional Radiology, Computed Tomography, Mammography, Bone Mineral Densitometer, Dental Radiography. As all good things come with few ill effects, long and over the limit (1mSv/yr for Public) exposures to the radiations and its leakages leads to far reaching health risks, we seriously need to look into the radiation hazards for the technicians, support staffs, people around the imaging facilities and the environment. As per the regulatory requirement from AERB (Atomic Energy Regulatory Board), appropriate structural shielding shall be provided for walls, doors of the room housing the X-ray equipment so that radiation exposures received by workers and the members of the public are kept to the minimum and shall not exceed their respective dose limits (20mSv/year average over five years for healthcare workers).
