I received a dose on my control badge. What does that mean?

Cody Miles | July 4, 2018

It is normal to receive dose on the control dosimeter. It represents the background and transit dose received on the badge from the time it left our facility and until it was returned. The dose recorded on a control dosimeter is usually low, and relatively constant from report to report. A control dosimeter will usually record a small dose (5 – 20 mrem per month).
