Dr. Archana Salvi | Dr. Jigar Salvi 
Abstract: Since the end of the 19th Century, man has learned to use radiation for many beneficial purposes. Today, many sources of radiation, such as x-ray machines, linear accelerators and radionuclides are used in clinical and research applications. Such beneficial uses may at times create potentially hazardous situations for personnel who work within the hospital. All uses of ionizing radiation at the Stanford Hospital & Clinics (SHC), the Lucile Packard Children's (LPCH) Hospital and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) are subject to review and approval by the Administrative Panel on Radiological Safety (APRS). The review assures that projects can be conducted safely. The Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) manages the health physics program
