Monthly radiation dosimeters due

September 1, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Monthly radiation dosimeters (“badges”) are due for exchange on Sept. 1.

Please return your August dosimetry to your departmental dosimetry contact and retrieve your September dosimetry. The wear period is shown on the front and back of the dosimeter.

Quarterly dosimetry should be kept and worn until the end of September.

If your department is operating with reduced staffing (due to COVID-19) and unable to exchange your dosimetry, you should continue to wear your current dosimetry until you receive your new dosimetry. However, you should not wear the same dosimetry for more than two wear periods.

On-time return of dosimetry enables timely reporting of results and improves departmental compliance with university policy and the Michigan Medicine dosimetry policy.

Dosimetry results are emailed to each department shortly after release by the dosimetry processor; if you wish to review your dosimetry results, see your departmental dosimetry contact or dosimetry supervisor.  To confidentially access your dosimetry results using the serial number on the back of your badge, follow these instructions.

If you have further questions about radiation dosimetry, contact the U-M Radiation Safety Service at lindarod@umich.edu.
