 1 Introduction
 1.1 Intended
Use
of
the
DoseAware
System
 The
DoseAware
System
is
an
electronic
X‐ray
dose
monitoring
system.
The
intended
 use
is
to
improve
the
awareness
of
people,
who
work
with
or
are
in
the
presence
of
 X‐Ray
imaging
equipment,
about
their
occupational
dose
(also
known
as
staff
dose).
 The
awareness
focuses
on:
 a
graphical
visualization
of
the
real‐time
staff
dose
rate
while
working
with
 • X‐Ray
equipment
in
examination
rooms
during
medical
procedures;
 instant
access
to
historical
staff
dose
for
reporting
and
analysis
purposes.
 • The
benefits
of
the
DoseAware
System
are
to:
 make
people
aware
of
their
received
staff
dose
during
clinical
work
with
X‐ray
 • imaging
equipment;
 instantly
visualize
the
result
of
reducing
measures
of
occupational
dose
by,
for
 • example,
changing
a
person’s
position
in
the
examination
room.
 The
DoseAware
System
may
not
be
used
as
a
legal
staff
dose
recording
solution.
The
 DoseAware
System
is
not
intended
for
patient
use.
 NOTE:
Do
not
expose
the
PDMs
in
direct
X‐ray
beam.
They
are
designed
to
be
exposed
 to
scattered
radiation
only.
 NOTE:
The
Dose
Manager,
DoseView,
Cradle
and
PDM
Rack
are
not
intended
to
be
 used
inside
examination
rooms.
 NOTE:
The
DoseAware
product
is
not
a
replacement
for
a
TLD
(ThermoLuminescent
 Dosimeter)
or
similar
product.
 
 The
components
of
the
Base
Station
Package
are
intended
to
be
used
in
combination
 with
a
number
of
PDMs.
In
this
configuration,
the
Base
Station
Package
is
designed
as
 a
monitoring
aid
for
hospital
staff.

 4.2 Getting
Started
with
DoseView
 NOTE:
Do
not
connect
the
Cradle
to
the
computer
unless
DoseView
and
the
Cradle
 driver
are
installed
on
the
computer.
 Follow
the
steps
below
to
get
started
with
DoseView:
 1. Start
the
DoseView
application.
 2. Connect
a
Cradle
to
your
computer’s
USB
port.
 3. Put
a
PDM
in
the
Cradle.
Within
a
few
seconds,
DoseView
will
detect
the
PDM.
 This
is
indicated
at
the
top
of
the
DoseView
window
by
a
note
“Connected
to
 PDM
100001158”,
where
PDM
100001158
is
an
example
of
a
PDM
ID.
 DoseView
will
start
loading
the
PDM
dose
history.
This
may
take
up
to
a
few
 minutes.
You
can
follow
the
progress
on
the
progress
bar
at
the
bottom
of
the
 DoseView
window.
 4.2.1 Troubleshooting
 If
the
PDM
does
not
appear:
 Check
that
the
PDM
is
correctly
fitted
into
the
Cradle.
 • If
the
Cradle
is
not
detected:
 Check
the
USB
connection
between
the
Cradle
and
the
computer.
 • Install
the
Cradle
driver
manually.
All
the
driver
files
are
located
on
the
 • installation
CD
in
the
folder
“CradleDriver”.
These
files
are
also
copied
to
the
 application
installation
folder
when
DoseView
is
installed.
When
Windows
 detect
a
connected
Cradle
and
the
dialog
about
driver
installation
is
displayed,
 select
to
use
the
driver
files
located
on
the
CD
or
in
the
application
installation
 folder.
 If

 5.1 Introduction
 The
PDM
is
an
active
dose
meter
designed
for
maintenance‐free
 usage
throughout
its
lifetime.
 You
can
personalize
the
PDM’s
appearance
by
attaching
one
of
the
8
 Figure
20
The
PDM
 inlays
of
different
color,
which
are
delivered
together
with
the
PDM
 (see
the
PDM
Quick
Guide).
 The
intended
PDM
position
is
outside
the
lead
apron.
If
it
is
used
under
the
lead
apron
 the
recorded
dose
will
have
to
be
adjusted.
 5.2 Getting
Started
 Follow
the
instructions
below
to
start
using
your
PDM:
 1. Make
sure
that
the
PDM’s
power
mode
is
set
to
“on”,
see
chapter
4.4.4.
 2. Attach
the
PDM
on
your
clothes,
using
the
metallic
clip,
which
is
located
on
 the
back
of
the
PDM.
The
PDM
now
records
dose
values
and
transmits
them
 to
Base
Stations
within
range.
You
can
also
read
out
the
recorded
dose
values
 by
using
DoseView
via
the
Cradle
(see
chapter
4.2).
 See
chapter
9
to
learn
more
about
PDM
memory
and
data
transfer
between

detect
the
PDM.
 This
is
indicated
at
the
top
of
the
DoseView
window
by
a
note
“Connected
to
 PDM
100001158”,
where
PDM
100001158
is
an
example
of
a
PDM
ID.
 DoseView
will
start
loading
the
PDM
dose
history.
This
may
take
up
to
a
few
 minutes.
You
can
follow
the
progress
on
the
progress
bar
at
the
bottom
of
the
 DoseView
window.
 6.3 Troubleshooting
 If
the
PDM
does
not
appear:
 Check
that
the
PDM
is
correctly
fitted
into
the
Cradle.
 • If
the
Cradle
is
not
detected:
 Check
the
USB
connection
between
the
Cradle
and
the
computer.
 • Install
the
Cradle
driver
manually.
All
the
driver
files
are
located
on
the
 • installation
CD
in
the
folder
“CradleDriver”.
These
files
are
also
copied
to
the
 application
installation
folder
when
DoseView
is
installed.
When
Windows
 detect
a
connected
Cradle
and
the
dialog
about
driver
installation
is
displayed,
 select
to
use
the
driver
files
located
on
the
CD
or
in
the
application
installation
 folder.

    7.1 Calibrating
the
Base
Station
Screen
 If
the
touch
screen
does
not
respond
correctly
to
user
interaction,
a
touch
screen
re‐ calibration
may
be
needed.
Follow
the
instructions
below
to
perform
a
re‐calibration:
 1. Tap
and
hold
on
the
Philips
start
up
screen
that
appears
during
Base
Station
 startup
until
the
Setup
view
appears.
 2. Follow
the
instruction
on
the
bottom
of
the
screen
and
the
subsequent
 instructions
in
the
next
views.
 7.2 Cleaning
the
Base
Station
Package
Components
 Clean
the
components
of
the
Base
Station
Package
when
necessary.
 
 WARNING:
Always
isolate
the
components
from
the
mains
electrical
supply
before
 cleaning
to
prevent
electric
shocks.
 WARNING:
Never
allow
water
or
other
liquids
to
enter
the
components,
since
these
 may
cause
electrical
short‐circuits
or
metal
corrosion.
 
 Clean
the
Base
Station,
Cradle,
PDMs,
PDM
Rack
and
connecting
cables
in
the
 following
way:
 1. Wipe
enameled
parts
and
aluminum
surfaces
clean
with
a
damp
cloth
and
 mild
detergent.
 2. Rub
down
with
a
dry
woolen
cloth.
 7.3 Disinfection
 Disinfect
the
components
of
the
Base
Station
Package
when
necessary.
Disinfect
the
 Base
Stations,
Cradle,
PDMs,
PDM
Rack
and
connection
cables
in
the
following
way:
 1. Switch
off
the
equipment
and
allow
it
to
cool.
This
prevents
convection
 currents
drawing
disinfectant
mist
into
the
equipment
(this
concerns
only
the
 Base
Station).
 2. Wipe
the
component
with
a
cloth
dampened
with
disinfectant.

The

to

 things
like

Memory
 The
PDM
has
two
dose
data
memories:
 The
accumulated
dose
memory,
where
the
PDM
stores
accumulated
dose
 • values
every
hour
for
the
entire
lifetime
of
the
PDM.
 The
dose
rate
memory,
where
the
PDM
stores
dose
rate
samples.
When
the
 • radiation
exceeds
40
µSv/h,
the
PDM
stores
one
sample
per
second.
This
 memory
is
limited
to
3600
second‐samples.
 NOTE:
When
the
dose
rate
memory
is
full,
the
oldest
data
will
be
overwritten
 with
newer
data.
 9.3 Base
Station
Memory
 The
Base
Station
stores
dose
information
and
PDM
Info
for
PDMs
that
have
been
 connected
to
it.
 As
the
Base
Station
does
not
have
a
limitation
of
3600
s
for
the
dose
rate
memory,
the
 information
transmitted
from
the
PDM
will
be
more
detailed.
When
a
PDM
is
 connected
to
a
Base
Station,
it
continuously
transmits
its
measured
dose
exposures.
 NOTE:
When
the
Base
Station
memory
is
full,
the
oldest
data
will
be
overwritten.

Data
Transfer
from

 When
a
PDM
gets
within
range
of
a
Base
Station,
it
will
transfer
data
to
the
Base
 Station
(the
accumulated
dose
values
the
PDM
has
collected
since
last
time
it
was
 within
range.
If
a
PDM
is
within
range
of
a
Base
Station
when
it
is
exposed
to
radiation,
 the
PDM
will
also
start
sending
dose
rate
samples
to
the
Base
Station
each
second.
 9.5 PDM
and
Base
Station/DoseView
Memories
 Dose
rate
samples
that
have
been
overwritten
in
the
PDM’s
dose
rate
memory
may
 still
be
available
in
the
Base
Station.
 If
there
are
no
dose
rate
samples
neither
in
the
Base
Station,
nor
in
the
PDM
dose
rate
 memory,
the
Base

information
provided
in
the
 accompanying
documents.
 The
use
of
accessories
and
cables
other
than
those
specified,
may
result
in
increased

stacked
with
other
products
and
that
if
 adjacent

stacked
use
is
necessary,
it
should
be
observed
to
verify
normal
