Innovative Biomedical Engineering Ltd. is concerned entirely with radiation safety and your veterinary practice.

We have inspected and certified over 10,000 x-ray machines.

In the province of British Columbia we are the largest provider of radiation surveys for veterinary x-ray facilities working closely with the BC Veterinary Medical Association. We routinely visit every region of the province and are available, usually within a few months, to visit your practice.

Innovative Biomedical Engineering Ltd. is certified by British Columbia Radiation Protection Services (a branch of BC Center for Disease Control) to provide x-ray shielding assessments and design.

Veterinary Practice Radiation Testing and Compliance

Innovative Biomedical Engineering is certified by the British Columbia Veterinary College and WorkSafe BC to conduct practice surveys for radiation protection. Inspections are carried with reference to federal and provincial governing agency guidelines including Health Canada’s Safety Code 28, WorkSafe BC OHS Part 7 and the BC Center for Disease Control Radiation Protection Branch.

Inspections include deep diagnostic testing of all radiation-emitting devices to determine operator and patient safety, including:

Measurement of Actual Dose

compared to equipment settings over a wide range of use cases representing the popular species cared for at the practice (ie: cats, dogs, birds, horses/large animals)

Emergency Shut-down

and warning systems

Beam Alignment

Rigorous Tests

to determine reproducibilityover time at various settings

Mechanical Condition

  • beam alignment
  • emergency shut-down and warning systems
  • mechanical condition of equipment
  • digital imaging systems

The practice layout is also assessed for operator and incendiary worker safety including considerations such as:

 

  • proper setbacks for protection from scatter radiation
  • radiation shielding as required
  • use and care of Personal Protection Devices (PPD)
  • operator knowledge
  • practice protocols for radiation protection
  • digital imaging

Innovative Biomedical Engineering also conducts acceptance testing of new equipment as required by various regulatory agencies (Diagnostic Accreditation Program, WorkSafe B.C., etc.).

 

Training and Guidance

Innovative Biomedical Engineering has developed a series of in-practice training classes that satisfy credit and certification requirements for industry advanced training. Course topics include:

Scatter Radiation
This 2-hour course teaches proper radiation protection to veterinary professionals, technicians and general practice staff by demonstrating techniques and actual scatter dose measurements at key locations within the practice. This highly informative (and often entertaining) class uses case studies and stories to relay important concepts in radiation protection.
