RaySafe i2 – Real-time Dosimetry Insight
Approximately 3.6 billion x-ray examinations are performed worldwide each year1, leading to earlier and more accurate diagnosis of medical diseases. However, clinical staff and patients face significant risks of stochastic and deterministic impacts of radiation2. Authorized regulatory bodies emphasize the importance of keeping the dose to medical staff and patients as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).
Minimizing exposure and achieving the ALARA standard
The traditional method to provide radiation safety is by offering radiation protection training. The medical staff that works in this very dynamic environment easily overlooks the invisible radiation risk. This can often lead to higher than necessary radiation exposure.
The RaySafe i2 allows staff to visualize x-ray in real-time. Building a strong radiation safety culture starts with giving the medical staff real-time insight about their personal exposure. This enables and empowers physicians, nurses, and staff to more effectively use all the radiation reduction solutions provided in the room. The RaySafe i2 is an active dosimetry system that provides real-time insights about radiation exposure, helping medical staff and physicians evaluate and directly adjust their behaviors.
Ease of use
The RaySafe i2 offers ease of use along with quick setup and installation. Similar to many personal electronics, the RaySafe i2 dosimetry system offers touchscreen technology. Personnel wear digitally assigned dosimeter badges and go about performing daily duties without interruption. Dose data is measured and saved for post procedure review and analysis.
The RaySafe i2 system stores data for up to 5 years, making this system your long term partner in building a first-class radiation safety culture. The dosimeter lasts 3-5 years, dependent on use, and does not require any annual calibration or maintenance. The system is built for rugged use in interventional and vascular labs.

RaySafe i2 personal dosimetry radiation monitoring system
The RaySafe i2 allows staff to visualize x-ray in real-time. Building a strong radiation safety culture starts with giving the medical staff real-time insight about their personal exposure.
|RaySafe i2 real-time display
The RaySafe i2 real-time display is a 10.4″ touch screen which is placed in the examination room. It shows real-time dose data from all dosimeters in range. The color indication (red, yellow, green) gives the individual user insight about the current dose exposure and the possibility to act accordingly. The accumulated dose per individual user is displayed next to the color indication bars.
RaySafe i2 real-time display features
RaySafe i2 dosimeter
The active dosimeter measures and records radiation every second. Dose data is transferred wirelessly to the real-time display. The dosimeter is maintenance-free, easy-to-use and can be personalized with different names and colors.
RaySafe i2 dose viewer
The dose viewer software helps administrating dosimeters and viewing personal dose information while connected to the RaySafe i2 cradle.The software allows you to view dose data history, change dosimeter names and reset dose history.
RaySafe i2 dose manager
The RaySafe i2 dose manager is an advanced software for analyzing, reporting and archiving dose information. The software handles multiple dosimeters and can retrieve dose information from multiple real-time displays through the hospital network or via USB storage.
Models and Accessories
The 451EXL provides remote control for many of the 451B and 451P functions via a Microsoft® Excel-based user interface, including real-time data logging with user defined alarm parameters, upload of the internal data log into Excel worksheet, real-time virtual instrument display, and accumulated dose measurement over a user defined integration period.
The 84-317 Multipurpose Tissue/Cyst Ultrasound Phantom helps provide both quantitative and qualitative information on the performance of all diagnostic ultrasound-imaging systems.
The auto-ranging 451P ion chamber radiation survey meter features a pressurized ionization chamber, providing enhanced sensitivity (µR resolution) and improved energy response to measure radiation rate and dose from x-ray and gamma sources.
