Devices capable of generating ionizing radiation referred to as radiation-generating devices (RGD) present a potential safety hazard to students, staff and faculty if the device is not used and/or stored properly. Safety requirements for analytical x-ray units, electron microscopes, bone densitometers, industrial radiography and x-ray irradiation devices are listed in The Ohio State University Radiation Safety Procedures Manual for Radiation-Generating Devices (Non-Human Use) and the Ohio Department of Health regulations.
