Abstract: Indoor air radon concentration was measured by exposing track-etch detectors in the Clinical Centre University of Prishtina and Faculty of Medicine, University of Prishtina in the city of Prishtina. Measurements were performed with the radon monitor PRM-145, which uses alpha scintillation cells and serves to determine the current concentration of radon. The results we obtained are in the range between the average values of radon for the interior spaces and values that pose a potential risk for lung cancer. Measuring the concentration of radon was done in total of 22 rooms and came up with values which are between 87 and 294 Bq m-3. In order to reduce the concentration of radon, we have built a ventilation pump, then we performed repeated measurements and finally came with results between 110-125 Bq m-3.
