Problems following hippocampal irradiation in interventional radiologists - doses and potential effects: a Monte Carlo simulation.


OBJECTIVE This study aimed at investigating radiation exposure of hippocampus in interventional medical profes sionals irradiated in the operating room, and to compare doses in the hippocampus with the effective dose (protec tion quantity), as well as with the doses measured by individual dosimeter, in order to estimate probability of reach ing levels of… (More)
