Radioactive Materials / X-Rays in Animals
Animals that have received radioactive material must be transported in such a manner as to prevent any contamination of hallways, elevators, etc. Solid bottom transfer containers are MANDATORY. Such animals may not be transported across public streets or sidewalks without OSEH/RSS approval and/or assistance. Requests for animal transport can be made by contacting OSEH/RSS (764-4420).

The Radiation Safety Officer must approve all off-campus transfers (i.e., VA Hospital) before they are performed.
