AAUP is the First Palestinian University to Provide TLD Device to Measure X-Ray Dose During Training

AAUP was the first Palestinian university to provide the TLD device among its philosophy to build a safe training environment for its student, as the Radiography Department in the Faculty of Allied Medical Sciences in AAUP has provided this device in order to measure the X-Ray dose that students are exposed to during the practical training.

The Thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD) is a device to measure the X-Ray doses that individuals either Medical Imaging Technicians or students in their practical training can be exposed to. TLD work depends on measuring the ionizing radiation by measuring the intensity of the visible light that comes from Calcium Fluoride and Lithium Fluoride crystals when being heated.
