Specific Gamma Constant Intensity

One reference (Gamma Radiation Safety Study Guide, Second Edition, Joe Bush) gives the above for IR192 as 5.2 R/hour at one foot. Another (Gamma Radiography, AEA Technology) states 5.9 R/hour at one foot. Can anyone give a good reference that might tell me which is correct or at least explain the discrepancy?

Thanks,

Hello Bill!

The correct exposure rate is 5.9R/Hr/Ci @ 1'. This is the rate I've always used. Kodak gives the rate as .55R/Hr/Ci @ 1 meter. Do the math and it works out. Folow this link:

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
