Institution and Requirements
Contact Name Phone

University of Washington Medical Center & Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA)

In order to simplify the process of review, the UW and SCCA radiation review committees have combined to form one committee which will review radiation being delivered to research participants at UW and/or SCCA. Investigators of studies involving radiation dose delivery at the UW Medical Center and/or SCCA may need to complete Human Subjects Radiation Approval Committee (HSRAC) Forms.

Examples if radiation use that requires HSRAC review 

Examples of HSRAC approved consent form risk language can be found in the following document from HSRAC
