Why does my dose report read zero when I know I got more?

Question

​Why does my dose report read zero when I know I got more?

Answer

Due to issues with sensitivity and background uncertainties, any dose below 10 mrem is recorded as zero.

If your personal dosimetry tracking indicates that you should have more than 10 mrem but this is not reflected in your dosimeter reading, get in touch with the FACET User Manager in case there has been some error. However, the personal dosimeters we use (RADOS) are used as an indicator only and the film dosimeters are the ones that give the reading me trust and use in official records. Small discrepancies are to be expected.
