In order to use the C-arms or the Keck XROMM Lab, you must:

  1. Complete the online Radiation Safety Training offered by the Brown University Office of Environmental Health & Safety. To get registered on the Traincaster System, please contact Erika Giblin, the Keck XROMM Lab Manager. Note that if you are a Brown student or employee, you will have to complete the Lab Safety and the Hazardous Waste classroom trainings. If using animals, then an animal use training must be completed also. Contact Erika Giblin to arrange all training.
  2. Read the Brown Radiation Use Manual and if applicable, the NRC Instruction Concerning Prenatal Radiation Exposure. Please direct any questions about these documents to Beth Brainerd.
  3. Complete the RSO-25K (X-ray User Certification) form and give it to Erika for signatures and forwarding to the Radiation Safety Office.
  4. Be trained in the use of the x-ray equipment by an approved Trainer (see list of Trainers on bulletin board inside the C-arm lab or in the hall of the Keck Lab).
