Systems and methods of monitoring radiation include a radiation monitoring glove. The glove is to be worn by a person that may be exposed to the radiation and includes at least one fiber sleeve attached to at least one finger of the glove. The glove also includes at least one scintillating fiber disposed in the at least one fiber sleeve. The scintillating fiber is configured for generating photons responsive to exposure to radiation in proximity thereto. The glove also includes a photon-sensing device disposed in a collector pocket on the glove. The photon-sensing device is operably coupled to a distal end of the one or more scintillating fibers.
