The aim of this study was to assess the radiation dose received by doctors, nurses, X-ray technician medical staff during cardiac catheterization in a representative sample of the staff in our angiography department. Radiation from X-ray machines can cause serious side effects. Radiation exposure of angiography staff (doctors, nurses, medical staff and X-ray technicians) has been recognized as a necessary hazard in angiography department. The purpose of our work is to determine angiography staff radiation doses during interventional radiology, to identify procedures associated with higher radiation doses, and to determine the effects of various parameters on staff doses. This study was performed at Suleyman Demirel University Medical Faculty Hospital. The procedure of study was performed in an interventional radiology department. We have recorded radiation doses data during all related imaging procedures performed as a part of department activity. The distances from the X-ray tube were 0 cm (doctor), 60 cm (nurse), 120 cm (medical staff) and 180 cm (X-ray technician). It is important to understand the radiation effects on medical staff in interventional radiology procedures. Determinants of radiation risk include not only radiation dose levels but also medical staff number, ages, gender and their position. These factors can increase or decrease the risk of exposure.
