X-rays in medicine are much more dangerous!

Thus, X-rays in the field of medical applications and various natural radioactivity cause a much higher radiation exposure than being near a radiometric measurement.

Nevertheless, respectful handling of radiometric measurements in accordance with regulations is inevitable.

Radiometric Measurement

Radiometric measurements for industrial processes are an important component in the successful performance of critical level, density and flow measurements.
