Analytical X-Ray

Analytical X-Ray Machine Use

Any individual using an analytical X-Ray machine must be trained in basic radiation safety principles and the actual operation of the machine. Radiation safety topics include:

  • Regulatory requirements for the use of analytical X-Ray equipment
  • Concepts of ionizing radiation and radiation dose
  • Health hazards associated with analytical X-Ray machines
  • Applicable radiation safety policies and procedures

The training dates are routinely on the 4th Wednesday of every month, at 10am via Microsoft Teams. Please contact Michael Kennedy at MJK154@pitt.edu with any further questions or to schedule training.

Instruction on the actual operation of the unit will be provided by departmental personnel.
