On April 16, 2012, the licensee radiographer’s assistant informed the licensee Radiation Safety Officer that his pocket dosimeter had gone off scale 10 days prior. The licensee sent the radiographer’s permanent badge for processing and the result was a 250 mSv (25 rem) whole body dose reading. The State of Florida was informed of the dose on April 24, and has verified the dose. The State of Florida continues its investigation.
