Pic spam!!!

So, the cars came into work with me yesterday to help me with some radiation measurements I needed to take.

Checking the phantom is correctly set up:









Ensuring the linac is ready for use




Then it was their turn to be irradiated. (x-ray images here.

Waiting their turn to go into the treatment room:



Positioned on the treatment couch:



X-ray treatment machine moved into position:




And, well, because LASERS!!!

Two things:

1.) Awesome! :D
Thank you :D

2.) 12MB/jpeg was totally neccessary, right? ;)
Yup! They were 25MB before I edited them :p


So, how long until they develop super powers?
Dunno, they only received about 1Gy dose, but it was a whole body dose which actually carries a 5% risk of death within 6-8 weeks, by which time they'll be with Archie, so he'll have to deal with the consequences!

So will I need to wear lead clothing and a radiation detector when these things finally get to me? :p

Do they have a Geiger counter at the office, he-he? Can you check how radioactive they are before sending them on?

It's like they went in the microwave, but they didn't feel as warm. :D :p
Oh trust me, they were pretty warm after being irradiated. But the radiation doesn't stick around - it's gone the minute the machine is switched off.

Pretty sure the cars touched Ice's balls.

This radiation is for the best.
