Abstract

The increasing use of ionizing radiation for diagnostic aims increases the alert on radiation protection. Whereas high standard and awareness are typically possessed by workers on Diagnostic Radiology facilities, personnel of Interventional Radiology departments are of higher need of attention. The works in Interventional Radiology the procedures are done with a long time fluoroscopy and the personnel being inside the imaging room. Two studies were performed on occupational dose measurement in Cardiac Interventional Radiology. The first study was done by measuring exposure levels on working staffs during a single interventional procedure, with the efficacy of available shielding being evaluated also. Second study was carried on by measuring scattered dose levels in various positions during a range of varied cardiac interventional procedures. On the whole, resulting remarks served as an input for the workers on the feasibility of their equipment, and scattered radiation during Cardiac Interventional Radiology procedures.
