RADIATION DOSIMETER AND RADIATION DOSE CALCULATION METHOD
This radiation dosimeter is equipped with: a radiation detector for detecting radiation
a shield member for covering the radiation detector
and a microcomputer for calculating a radiation dose on the basis of the energy of radiation detected by the radiation detector and a conversion factor that is defined according to the energy of radiation scattered by the shield member. The radiation detector detects the radiation scattered by the shield member. According to this radiation dosimeter, sensitivity of radiation detection can be improved, and accuracy of dose measurement can be improved without complicating the structure thereof.
