Radiation Safety Office Student Dosimetry Badge Service
It is MUSC Policy that anyone entering areas subject to ionizing radiation will have radiation dosimetry badges affixed or will be unable to enter those areas.
Dosimetry badges are devices used to monitor occupational radiation exposure to ionizing radiation.
As a medical student, one or more of your rotations may require you to be in areas where x-ray producing machines will be in use. In an effort to ensure your exposure is monitored, MUSC is beginning a six-month badge program for third and fourth year medical students. Each badge will monitor exposure from July 1st through the end of December, and a new badge will be issued to monitor exposure from January 1st through the end of June. Your badge coordinator is Christine Talbot-Bond. She will hold all badges and will distribute these at the Year 3 Orientation and to Year 4 students on rotation.
In order to receive a Dosimetry Badge from Radiation Safety, you must complete the following steps:
