SCINTO-Thyroid

Strahlenschutz- Entwicklungs- und Ausrüstungs-Gesellschaft (S.E.A.) was set up in 1993 by Heinz Kirsch and Günter Werthmann. Both founders brought with them many years of experience in the fields of radiation protection and nuclear measuring equipment. As a mid-sized company, S.E.A. benefits from short, streamlined decision-making processes, ensuring that measuring solutions can be developed to address special requests and specific customer requirements at any time. And more than a few of these special custom solutions have gone on to become series products. One example on show at INTERSCHUTZ 2015 in Hannover is the SCINTO-Thyroid mobile system for measuring thyroid radiation dose.

In the event of a nuclear accident involving the release of radioactive material, most contingency plans include setting up emergency centers for the affected population. Following contamination checks and decontamination if necessary, medical professionals then need to be able to measure the thyroid radiation dose of each individual. The SCINTO-Thyroid dose and dose rate meter has been designed specifically for this purpose. This specialized version of SCINTO, which is also used in safety engineering, is a measurement system that combines a highly sensitive NaI scintillation detector with application-specific software.
