As Radiation Safety facilitates and monitors all radioactive materials and radiation generating device use at Boston University and Boston Medical Center, exposure monitoring is a primary concern. As a major component of ensuring the safe work practices with radiation sources, Radiation Safety distributes, surveys, and monitors all dosimetry to BU, BUMC, and BMC employees.
Dosimeters are passive exposure monitors distributed to individuals who are likely to receive 10% of their annual exposure limits or who otherwise request them. Please contact Radiation Safety if you have any questions or concerns. To request a dosimetry, please fill out the Dosimetry Request Form and email to RPO.
To declare a pregnancy, which is on a voluntary basis, please fill out the Pregnancy Declaration as well as the Dosimetry Request Form. After completing these forms, contact the Radiation Safety Officer at 8 x7052 or by email to set up a pregnancy consultation. If pregnancy dosimetry is requested, a consultation with the RSO must be completed.
