with any high-energy X-ray or other radiation equipment installation,
limiting human exposure was a paramount concern when designing the
accelerators have been selected as the best means for providing a high
energy source, without compromising either safety or image quality.
systems exceed the most stringent international standards, including
those imposed by the WHO and IAEA. Each
system includes as standard equipment a number of safety systems,
including shielding, safety interlocks, and alarms.
accelerators provide a much higher level of safety than alternative
sources, including a limitation that X-rays can only be generated by the
system when the high voltage generator is powered up.
Unlike alternate X-ray sources, no radiation is produced by the
system when it is not powered.
exposure is actually much lower than natural background radiation.The
speaks for itself. THSCAN systems
have been installed in about 40 international locations without a single
incident of hazardous radiation exposure.
