PNRI signs MOU for neutron applications in medical physics

Helping to ensure the safety of workers exposed to radiation due to their occupation, DOST - Philippine Nuclear Research Institute signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Medical Physics and Health Physics Services, Inc. for Project LUNIS (Low-Dose Uniform Neutron Irradiation System) on May 31, 2022 at the PNRI compound in Quezon City.

The partnership will harness PNRI's expertise in neutron measurement and dosimetry to ultimately benefit medical professionals and other sectors, whose working environments will improve in terms of radiation protection and safety thanks to better calibration of detectors and dosimeters, among others.
