The body monitoring service at the UK Health Security Agency, Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards Directorate (UKHSA RCE) has a range of systems to measure radionuclides within the body using detectors positioned outside the body. Radionuclides may enter the body by inhalation, ingestion or contamination of a wound.
RCE systems are suitable for measurement of radionuclides which emit low energy as well as higher energy photons (e.g. americium-241, caesium-137, cobalt-60).
Types of monitoring offered include:
Enquiries from industry are welcome. However, requests from private individuals will be considered only after referral by a GP or hospital consultant.
