(We had brought a roll of drawings into a beamline enclosure as a reference. When one leaves, one must check for radioactivity on ones's person or objects one is carrying. My colleague Mike was frisking the roll with a pancake counter, scanning it from end to end, rotating the roll a little, then moving the frisker in the other direction.)
