IDEAplus is designed for covering all phases of incorporation monitoring and internal dosimetry. The program includes planning and performing of monitoring, evaluation of monitoring data and documentation of monitoring results.
The "Person data" window (next shot) lists all personal information which might be necessary for incorporation moniring. For entering such data for a new person, please push the "New" button (next shot). The program fills automatically a negative number in the "Person-ID" field (the negative ID enables the software to discriminate hypothetical cases from real cases which might be very important for statistics etc).
Now you may enter all personal data. The gender is important for dosimetry (next shot). The "Occupational category" is important for reporting in some countries such as Germany (next shot). The institution might be important for reporting and statistics as well and will be defined in a separate window "Institutions".
The "Monitoring category" is relevant for monitoring. For starting the tutorial, we chose "No monitoring required". We will decide later on the basis of exposure data whether monitoring is required for Dr. Taylor or not.
There is also a window "Note" where you can enter any additional information about the work and the special exposure conditions of Dr. Taylor.
After having completed all entries you confirm the data set by pushing the "Confirm" button (last shot).
