Designated Radiation Safety Officer

The hospital designates an individual to serve as the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) who is responsible for making certain that radiologic services are provided in accordance with law, regulation, and organizational policy.

The RSO has the necessary authority and leadership support to:

  • Monitor and verify compliance with established radiation safety practices (including oversight of dosimetry monitoring)
  • Provide recommendations for improved radiation safety
  • Intervene as needed to stop unsafe practices
  • Implement corrective action

No matter your situation, Radiation Safety Support Services provide:

  • Support for your current Radiation Safety Officer

  • Guidance on naming an Radiation Saftey Officer
