and their professionalism has been outstanding.
Saint Paul, Minnesota (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
The website provides a large body of reliable information about radiation to answer virtually every question about the sources, uses and safety of radiation. Sponsored by an association of radiation professionals, the content of the website has been reviewed by independent experts to ensure that the website provides the most accurate information available anywhere.
The Minneapolis web design firm included several extras that help the website attain its objectives. One such feature is a "site search" that helps visitors find answers to the questions that interest them and also provides feedback through Plaudit Design's site analytic tools to help the Health Physics Society discover the topics that people are most interested in.
Another unique feature of the website is a dynamic unit conversion tool. Visitors can select either "RAD" or "SV" units through a widget that appears on every page of the website. All doses are then displayed in the selected units.
Rollover word definitions promote more accurate understanding by providing instant access to definitions for technical terms. Plaudit Design has provided technology to add definitions to the website dynamically based on a glossary that is editable by the Health Physics Society.
Rather than just a static repository, the website is constantly improving as the Health Physics
Society uses Plaudit Design's Content Management System (CMS) to add more information as research improves the scientific community's understanding of radiation and its uses.
David Schlotfeldt, VP of Development, was impressed by the Health Physics members who work in professional positions in medicine, physics, electric power and defense at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country and also contribute their time, knowledge and passion to the Health Physics Society. "Working with the Health Physics Society has been an opportunity to help experts in radiation bring reliable information to the public," he said, "and their professionalism has been outstanding."
Kelly Classic, a health physicist in radiation safety at the Mayo Clinic, said "I worked with Plaudit Design to develop the Radiation Answers website and am pleased that the website has exceeded the expectations of my colleagues at the Health Physics Society."
