It is extremely important to protect the human body from radioactive rays. Protective clothing can be used to absorb radiation because it is preferable to avoid the natural and artificial radiation exposure in our daily lives. There are many different types of fabric, used for clothes. In this study radiation absorbing properties of fabrics, which are widely used in the daily life, such as alpaca-type fabric, cotton fabric, cotton polyester blend fabric, woven dyed fabric and knitted fabric were examined using the image processing method.
