Radiation Safety

The hospital has an internal licensing system that controls the radioisotope types and amounts, their uses within areas in the hospital. Every wet bench researcher that uses a radioisotope must hold radioisotope-use-permit.

Information on handling, transport and safe use procedures for radioactive substances can be found here. The documents contained here cover procedures for wet bench researchers, but also for applications within the hospital. For further information on radiation safety and the use of radioisotopes, contact the Radiation Safety Officer, Jim Fellowes (ext. 2883, fellowesj@smh.ca).
