See the Principal Investigator (PI) Permit to Use Radioactive Material page for the permit application and information on how to apply.
The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Radiation Safety Committee (VUMC RSC) will ensure that radioactive material, licensed under the broadscope radioactive material license, and ionizing radiation producing equipment (i.e. x-ray equipment, fluoroscopes, accelerators, etc.) are used safely, and in compliance with State of Tennessee and federal regulations, broadscope license conditions, and certified registrations. The RSC must also; (1) review and approve or disapprove users and uses of licensed material; (2) review recommendations on ways to maintain individual and collective doses as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA); (3) review quarterly, a summary of the occupational radiation dose records (ALARA report) of all personnel working with licensed material; (4) review quarterly all incidents involving licensed materials with respect to cause and subsequent actions taken; and (5) review annually the radiation safety program.
