Contained Sources

Contained sources' are radioactive sources in which the radioactivity cannot be easily dispersed due to the nature of their design or construction. Because the spread of contamination from contained source use is much less likely, the radiation safety requirements are different than for other radioactive sources. The following topics apply specifically to Contained Source use:

Additionally, the following topics apply to radioactive materials in general, including contained sources:
