The shielding we undertake primarily involves the use of lead or other high density material to shield against ionising radiation. EEP design and install radiation protection systems for a wide range of applications from medical ionising radiation shielding to industrial shielding.
EEP can also supply individual components such as radiation shielded doors and windows for installation by others. EEP can install chevron blocks, and lead sheets or plates of varying thickness, depending on the Radiation Protection Advisor's calculations.
Radiation Shielded walls can be built either as stand alone partition walls or formed against existing structural walls, to a decorative finish.
EEP provide support for the walls in manual or powered swing and sliding radiation shielded doors, which include neutron protection.
Various fixing techniques are employed to counteract the immense load put on the support structure, ensuring vertical supports can compensate for ceiling deflections. Lead baffles have also been developed in order to deal with service penetrations without losing radiation shielding effectiveness. All orders are designed whilst considering the dynamics of a working site and the external services which may impinge upon performance. This approach allows us to regularly monitor the situation and to produce a suitable action should a possible risk be noted. We provide a comprehensive package relating to radiation shielding needs – from concept to commissioning; notably for linac bunkers. A linear accelerator (Linac) uses microwave technology to accelerate electrons which then collide with a heavy metal target, resulting in the release of high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation.
Although concrete is normally used to protect against this, we provide the specialist shielding associated with access routes to and within the bunker. We also offer a Total, Consolidated Service relating to the shielding and monitoring requirements associated with Linac bunkers.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear medical imaging technique which produces a three-dimensional image or map of functional processes in the body.
EEP offers shielding solutions which meet the requirements for the PET suite operated by the Nuclear Medicine Department. To ensure that exposures are as low as reasonably achievable, lead lined walls are constructed around the area where the PET scans are conducted. Shield tests conducted by EEP after photon shielding installation have concluded that annual exposures (whole body doses) to personnel inside and outside the suite are well below regulatory limits. Hard X-rays can penetrate solid objects, and their largest use is to take images of the inside of objects in diagnostic radiography and crystallography.
The roentgen (R) is an obsolete traditional unit of exposure, which represented the amount of radiation required to create one electrostatic unit of charge of each polarity in one cubic centimeter of dry air. The rad is the (obsolete) corresponding traditional unit, equal to 10 millijoules of energy deposited per kilogram. The sievert (Sv) is the SI unit of equivalent dose, which for X-rays is numerically equal to the gray (Gy).
X-rays are generated by an X-ray tube, a vacuum tube that uses a high voltage to accelerate the electrons released by a hot cathode to a high velocity.

In crystallography, a copper target is most common, with cobalt often being used when fluorescence from iron content in the sample might otherwise present a problem. X-ray fluorescence: If the electron has enough energy it can knock an orbital electron out of the inner electron shell of a metal atom, and as a result electrons from higher energy levels then fill up the vacancy and X-ray photons are emitted. So the resulting output of a tube consists of a continuous bremsstrahlung spectrum falling off to zero at the tube voltage, plus several spikes at the characteristic lines. In medical diagnostic applications, the low energy (soft) X-rays are unwanted, since they are totally absorbed by the body, increasing the dose. To generate an image of the cardiovascular system, including the arteries and veins (angiography) an initial image is taken of the anatomical region of interest. A specialized source of X-rays which is becoming widely used in research is synchrotron radiation, which is generated by particle accelerators. The most commonly known methods are photographic plates, photographic film in cassettes, and rare earth screens. Before the advent of the digital computer and before invention of digital imaging, photographic plates were used to produce most radiographic images.
Since photographic plates are sensitive to X-rays, they provide a means of recording the image, but they also required much X-ray exposure (to the patient), hence intensifying screens were devised. Areas where the X-rays strike darken when developed, causing bones to appear lighter than the surrounding soft tissue. Contrast compounds containing barium or iodine, which are radiopaque, can be ingested in the gastrointestinal tract (barium) or injected in the artery or veins to highlight these vessels.
An increasingly common method is the use of photostimulated luminescence (PSL), pioneered by Fuji in the 1980s. The PSP plate can be reused, and existing X-ray equipment requires no modification to use them.
For many applications, counters are not sealed but are constantly fed with purified gas, thus reducing problems of contamination or gas aging. Some materials such as sodium iodide (NaI) can "convert" an X-ray photon to a visible photon; an electronic detector can be built by adding a photomultiplier. An LED lighting solution for MR rooms which allows variation in light colour and intensity and therefore helps patients relax by creating a comforting ambience during diagnostic imaging.
This involves constructing walls, service penetrations, lead lined doors and lead equivalent windows and screens.
As all projects are unique, we pride ourselves on our ability to integrate installation with all other trades. This ensures any local problem can be addressed quickly, with minimal impact on the programme. This work includes undertaking conceptual studies, reviewing health physics issues, as well as installation and commissioning.
This process produces an emission spectrum of X-ray frequencies, sometimes referred to as the spectral lines. The intensity of the X-rays increases linearly with decreasing frequency, from zero at the energy of the incident electrons, the voltage on the X-ray tube.
A second image is then taken of the same region after iodinated contrast material has been injected into the blood vessels within this area.

The contrast compounds have high atomic numbered elements in them that (like bone) essentially block the X-rays and hence the once hollow organ or vessel can be more readily seen.
In modern hospitals a photostimulable phosphor plate (PSP plate) is used in place of the photographic plate. Check out these great prices on slightly used or just opened once only items.I always buy my gadgets via these great Warehouse deals !

The spectral lines generated depend on the target (anode) element used and thus are called characteristic lines. These two images are then digitally subtracted, leaving an image of only the iodinated contrast outlining the blood vessels.
Photographic film largely replaced these plates, and it was used in X-ray laboratories to produce medical images.
In the pursuit of a non-toxic contrast material, many types of high atomic number elements were evaluated.
After the plate is X-rayed, excited electrons in the phosphor material remain "trapped" in "colour centres" in the crystal lattice until stimulated by a laser beam passed over the plate surface. Electrons accelerate toward the anode, in the process causing further ionization along their trajectory.
The radiologist or surgeon then compares the image obtained to normal anatomical images to determine if there is any damage or blockage of the vessel.
In more recent years, computerized and digital radiography has been replacing photographic film in medical and dental applications, though film technology remains in widespread use in industrial radiography processes (e.g. For example, the first time the forefathers used contrast it was chalk, and was used on a cadaver's vessels. This process, known as a Townsend avalanche, is detected as a sudden current, called a "count" or "event".
When the film is developed, the parts of the image corresponding to higher X-ray exposure are dark, leaving a white shadow of bones on the film.
Photographic plates are mostly things of history, and their replacement, the "intensifying screen", is also fading into history.
The metal silver (formerly necessary to the radiographic & photographic industries) is a non-renewable resource.
Thus it is beneficial that this is now being replaced by digital (DR) and computed (CR) technology.
Where photographic films required wet processing facilities, these new technologies do not.
Which is really, really cool- but this only creates a WHEEL not a MOTOR!My simple question is this: Does anybody truly know how to get around the ?bump?.
