S. Revell; A. Tull; J.C. White; and J.A. Lopez (UTSWMC)
A study of workload and volume of Radiation Safety Program activities for the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UTSWMC) was conducted using data accumulated over a span of ten years between 1994 and 2003. The data conveys trends for normal activities conducted within the radiation safety group and compares these trends with staffing levels over the same period of time. The study was initiated after a University of Texas System components Peer Review report showed a clear lack of staff at UTSWMC when compared with other UT components. This study does not compare staffing levels between the components but focuses on workload and volumes as conducted by the radiation safety group over the last ten years and presents summations in comparison with staffing levels.
