The body monitoring service at the Public Health England Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards (PHE CRCE) 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.
PHE systems are suitable for measurement of radionuclides which emit low energy as well as higher energy photons (for example, americium-241, caesium-137, or cobalt-60).
Types of monitoring offered include the following.
