Kalamazoo, MI (June 2019) During the 64th HPS Annual Meeting, VP of Technology & Applications Ben Ramsay will present an abstract titled “Odyssey: A Web-Based Modern Management System for Radiation Safety Programs.” A summary of the abstract is below.

Odyssey is a cloud-based software suite of radiation safety tools designed to assist radiation safety experts and healthcare professionals in managing their radiation safety program and increasing compliance. Odyssey is hosted on Amazon Web Services for data security and scaling and acts as a centralized location for data entry, storage, and analysis to improve efficiency and reduce cost. The primary focus of Odyssey is to provide innovative tools for radiation safety program management. Users can easily manage laboratories by uploading maps and survey information, viewing status logs and comments, and cataloging radioactive material inventory. Machines and instruments can be tracked for maintenance, quality assurance, and calibration. In addition, Odyssey has a permitting system to ensure that any authorized users, radioactive material, and machines entered into the software are allowed based on existing licenses and regulations. The software allows for the management of personnel dosimetry programs with multiple vendors, as well as the creation and assignment of educational courses. To assist with these radiation safety duties, Odyssey has a unified scheduling system with task delegation and alerts, form creation and image editing, and a document library with a shared repository. Together, Odyssey’s features create a comprehensive system that removes procedural barriers to effectively manage both large and small-scale radiation safety programs.

Forum Article "Radiopharmaceutical Extravasation: Pragmatic Radiation Protection" published ahead of print

An article written by Versant team members Dr. Darrell R. Fisher, Ph.D. and Misty Liverett, M.S., CNMT was recently published ahead of print in Health Physics. The article provides an unbiased, scientific assessment of pragmatic and reasonable health physics actions that should be taken in response to inadvertent extravasation events.

Permit Profile

Each permit has a dedicated profile of information that includes authorized personnel, radioactive material, machines, and devices. Permit conditions, completed audits, and forms are also found on this profile.

Authorized Condition Database

Create and view authorized conditions included on permits. Previously created authorized conditions are listed with their code, category, and description.

Permit Enforcement

Information specified on a permit not only serves as a record of that permit, but also controls what can be added to other modules. The location, owner and type of radioactive materials, machines, and equipment can be enforced by permits.

Permit Audits

Perform permit audits, mail the results to relevant personnel, and track responses to non-compliances.
