The Georgetown University (GU) Radiation Safety Office Staff (RSOS) ensures the safe and secure use of radioactive materials (RAM) and radiation producing devices (RPD).  By providing services and training, conducting inspections, and fostering open lines of communication with our researchers, the RSOS protects the health and safety of the campus community, general public and environment.  The Radiation Safety  program ensures all radiation exposures are kept ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) and that all RAM and RPD use is in compliance with applicable Federal and D.C. regulations.
