The basics of radiation protection for hospital workers: considerations and procedures.

Abstract

Radiology is probably one of the most widely misunderstood technologies in healthcare. The health risks of x-ray exposure are not as great as many think, nor are x-rays the only source of radiation. The author dispels some of the mysteries with a definition of radiation, an explanation of its sources and standards, and some basic tips on protection.
