Radiation Safety

Radioactive materials and radiation-producing devices play an important role in medical research and teaching, as well as in the diagnosis and treatment of disease at RUSH University. The use of these materials and devices is authorized and governed by federal, state and local regulations, in addition to policies and procedures established by the university and its associated medical facilities.

Because radiation can be potentially hazardous to human health, RUSH has established its Radiation Safety Program, which supports the safe use of these tools by establishing structures and procedures to ensure that: any hazards associated with the use of radioactive materials or radiation-producing devices are minimized; and that all uses of these materials and devices are in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.
