Duke employees who work with radiation sources (including x-ray machines, CT scanners, portable C-arms, irradiators, etc.) or radioactive materials may be required to wear a personnel dosimeter ("film badge"). Whether or not you need a dosimeter depends upon your individual circumstances. If you have a question about whether or not you need a dosimeter, contact Netiti Moori at (919)668-3156. For instructions on how to wear your dosimeters and read your dosimetry reports, see our Personnel Dosimeter Tutorial.
If you lose your dosimeter, contact us obtain a replacement as soon as possible. Do not wear another person's dosimeter, and do not wear a dosimeter marked as a "Control" ! If a replacement dosimeter is not needed immediately, you can download a "Certificate of Lost Badge" from the OESO Web site, and return it to us via fax at (919)668-2783.
If you have been monitored for radiation exposure at another employer in the past, you must complete and sign a release form so that Duke Radiation Safety can obtain your radiation exposure history. Download a "Radiation Exposure History Release" form and return it OESO via fax at (919)668-2783 or regular mail (Radiation Safety Division, Box 3155, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC 27710).
