Can a radiation therapy technologist work overtime, or is it not allowed due to too much radiation exposure?

In brief: Overtime Allowed

With following guidelines and safe radiation practices, dose to the technologist, therapist, doctor, nurse and other health related workers are typically well below limits that interfere with mandated regulations.

In brief: It is allowed & safe

All radiation workers are monitored closely for their exposure to radiation dose.
It is very rare for a radiation therapist to come close to the established safety limits for radiation exposure...Even working overtime. Radiation safety procedures and shielding make exposure to unintended radiation much less likely. Read more here: http://www.Nrc.Gov/about-nrc/radiation/health-effects/info.Html.
