Radiation Safety Guide

Radiation Protection Services (RPS) has the responsibility to implement the radiation safety program at Stony Brook University. The complete rules and regulations for the safe use of radioactive materials can be found in the University Radiation Protection Committee (URPC) Policies and Procedures booklet, which is available in each authorized radioactive materials laboratory. This booklet is provided to aid you in recognizing your responsibility for radiation safety. While it gives an overview of basic radiation safety procedures, it is the responsibility of each radiation worker to be thoroughly familiar with all applicable sections of the Radioactive Materials Safety Manual.

Radioiodine Exposure Monitoring

Radioiodine exposure monitoring is accomplished by thyroid bioassay. Such monitoring will be accomplished whenever an investigator uses a quantity of I-125 or I-131 at any time which equals or exceeds 100m Ci. The investigator shall notify RPS of such use so that arrangements for a bioassay within 72 hours may be made.
