Abstract

John Kotre presents on the subject of radiation exposure to radiology staff. He concludes: radiation protection for radiology staff has come a long way in 120 years and doses are well controlled by standard procedures; significant investment aimed solely at further reducing staff doses could be argued not to be within the ALARP principle; the most valuable technical developments would seem be those aimed at reductions in patient radiation doses which in turn offer the possibility of reduced staff doses.
