1. Test Report-Exposure and Ambient dose Equivalent Rate Measurements in Support of the ITRAP+10 Testing
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1800
Published: 8/1/2013
Authors: Leticia S Pibida, Ronaldo Minniti, Larry Lee Lucas, C Michelle O'Brien
Abstract: In this work we studied the response of two different Victoreen® instruments as a function of the exposure rate, the instrument orientation and photon energy. The rate dependence for both instruments is of the order of 8 % over the range of expos ...

2. Comparison of the standards for air kerma of the NIST and the BIPM for 60Co gamma radiation
Published: 7/31/2013
Authors: Ronaldo Minniti, C Kessler, P J Allisy-Roberts
Abstract: An indirect comparison of the standards for air kerma of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA, and of the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) was carried out in the 60Co radiation beam of the BIPM in September 2 ...

3. CT head-scan dosimetry in an anthropomorphic phantom and associated measurement of ACR accreditation-phantom imaging metrics under clinically representative scan conditions
Published: 7/24/2013
Authors: Ronaldo Minniti, Claudia Brunner, Stanley H. Stern, Marie I. Parry, Kish Chakrabarti
Abstract: The purpose of this work was to measure radiation absorbed dose and its distribution in an anthropomorphic head phantom under clinically representative scan conditions in three widely-used computed tomography (CT) scanners, and to relate those dose v ...

4. Relationship between CTDI values and measured Peak Skin Dose (PSD)
Published: 7/16/2013
Authors: Ronaldo Minniti, Hugo de las Heras Gala, Sean Wilson, Chad Mitchell, Marlene Skopec, Claudia Brunner, Kish Chakrabarti
Abstract: In this work we relate the CT dose index volume (CTDIvol) readily displayed in all CT units with an actual Peak Skin Dose (PSD) value. Measurements of the CTDI and skin exposure were performed simultaneously using an ionization chamber and radiochrom ...

5. Measurements and Standards for Bulk-Explosive Detection
Published: 5/31/2012
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, Fred B Bateman, Paul Mark Bergstrom, Frank Cerra, Jack Leigh Glover, Ronaldo Minniti, Stephen Michael Seltzer, Ronald E Tosh
Abstract: Due to the ease of assembly and leveraged disruptive effect, the improvised explosive device (IED) is the method of choice of today‰s terrorist. With more than ten thousand IED incidents annually, and global expenditures for aviation and commercial s ...

6. Measurement of the absorbed dose distribution near Ir192 intravascular brachytherapy seed using a high spatial resolution gel dosimetry system
Published: 5/10/2012
Authors: Ronaldo Minniti, G. Massillon, Michael G Mitch, Christopher Graham Soares
Abstract: The absorbed dose distribution at sub-millimeter distances from the Best single 192Ir intravascular brachytherapy seed was measured using a high spatial resolution gel dosimetry system. Two gel phantoms from the same batch were used; one for the seed ...

7. Effect of Neutron Irradiation on Dosimetric Properties of the TLD-600H (Lif6:Mg,Cu,P)
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: A A Romanyukha, Ronaldo Minniti, M. Moscovitch, Alan K Thompson, F. Trompier, Ronald Colle, A Sucheta, S. P. Voss, L. A. Benevides
Abstract: Ideally, dosimeters should measure the dose without their dosimetric properties being affected by the radiation type being measured. Industry-wide occupational radiation workers that can be potentially exposed to neutron radiation fields are routine ...

8. High-resolution 3D dose distribution measured for two low-energy x-ray brachytherapy seeds: I125 and PD103
Published: 11/3/2010
Authors: Guerda Massillon, Ronaldo Minniti, Michael G Mitch, Christopher Graham Soares
Abstract: An investigation of the three-dimensional (3D) absorbed dose distribution around two low-energy photon (125I and 103Pd) brachytherapy seeds is presented. A high spatial resolution 3D gel scanning system has been utilized. The radial dose function, g( ...

10. Validation Testing of ANSI/IEEE N42.49 Standard Requirements for Personal Emergency Radiation Detectors
Published: 4/30/2010
Authors: Leticia S Pibida, Ronaldo Minniti, C Michelle O'Brien
Abstract: Various radiation detectors including thirteen electronic Personal Emergency Radiation Detectors (PERDs), radiochromic film cards and thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) were used to validate a subset of the radiological test requirements listed in t ...
