Measurements of different factors related with ionizing radiation are one of the most important elements of radiation protection which helps to determine if radiation protection measures are needed and assess the efficiency of measures implemented. The measurements are a part of radiation protection research.

The system of research is created in the Radiation Protection Centre. It meets Lithuanian needs, i.e., when it was created such circumstances as types of available practices, pathways and magnitudes of exposure, legal requirements, potential problems in radiation protection. Experience and resources available in other institutions, availability of professionals in the Radiation Protection Centre, necessity of measurements in case of nuclear and radiological accident were also taken into account.

The following research and investigations are performed at the Radiation Protection Centre recently:
  • personal dose equivalents Hp(10), Hp(0,07),
  • activities of radionuclides in human body by whole body counter and bioassay,
  • activities of radionuclides in thyroid,
  • ambient dose equivalents,
  • patients’ doses (entrance surface doses) in diagnostic radiology,
  • dose area products,
  • computed tomography dose indexes,
  • gamma spectrometry (in various samples),
  • activity concentrations of Sr90/Y90 (in various samples),
  • activity concentrations of H3 (in various samples),
  • gross alpha and beta activity concentrations (in various samples),
  • concentrations of radon indoors, in soil and water,
  • activity concentrations of radionuclides in air,
  • parameters of x-ray machines important for image quality and doses to patients,
  • illumination of viewing boxes and quality control of film development process,
  • radionuclide content of radioactive materials of unknown origin,
  • enrichment of nuclear fuel,
  • dose, dose rate and radioactive contamination of surface.

Much attention is paid to quality assurance. The Radiation Protection Centre is accredited for tests according to the standard EN ISO/IEC 17025.

Results of research and investigations are used in scientific publications and presentations, preparation of drafts of legal documents and guides in radiation protection.
