FLIR PRIMED Episode 27: Why are Sensitivity and Resolution Important for Radiation Detection?

Radiation events are rare, but extremely serious. Understanding the personal radiation detectors (PRDs), spectroscopic radiation detectors (SPRDs), and radionuclide identification devices (RIDs) available to you and how they work can make all the difference. In FLIR PRIMED episode 27, Grant Coffey will take a deeper look into sensitivity and resolution – two important factors that determine how quickly and cleanly a detector will sense and identify a radiation source.
