The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), is a unit of the University of Nebraska System and is the health sciences training center for the state of Nebraska.
UNMC and its teaching hospital, Nebraska medicine, has gained recognition as a center of excellence for teaching, quality patient care, and research programs.
Radiation is used extensively in the hospital in the treatment of patients and in the UNMC research laboratories to learn more about normal bodily function and diseases with the goal of developing better means of treating them.
The high-quality medical care we have today would not exist without the use of radiation.
The UNMC radiation Safety office (RSO) oversees the use of radiation and radioactive material at UNMC and UNO, and ensures compliance with state and federal regulations to protect UNO/UNMC employees, students, the public, and the environment.
Radiation Safety Manual
The University of Nebraska Medical Center Radiation Safety Manual is a book of procedures and useful information for the radiation worker who uses either radioactive materials or radiation-producing machines in a laboratory setting at UNMC and UNO.
