    Radiation protection is based on the three fundamental principles of justification of exposure, keeping doses (of ionizing radiation) as low as reasonably achievable (optimization) and the application of dose International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is responsible for the development of these principles.. Justification. A full-color resource, Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography, 7th Edition makes it easy to understand both basic and complex concepts in radiation protection, biology, and physics. Concise coverage promotes the safe use of ionizing radiation in all imaging modalities, including the effects of radiation on humans at the cellular and systemic levels, regulatory and advisory .

    Radiation protection programme The operating organization should develop, document and implement a radiation protection programme (RPP) [7]. This should include information on the radiation protection arrangements, the safety assessment, the measures to implement the arrangements and the mechanism for the review and updating the arrangements. Professor Keith Horner, Co-Editor of FGDP(UK)’s Selection Criteria for Dental Radiography, analyses what the Ionising Radiation Regulations and draft Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations mean for dentists and dental practice teamsThis article is an updated version; the original was published on in August and is available here.

Dental personnel must not expose any individual to the useful beam for training or demonstration purposes In areas or rooms where X-ray equipment is used, post a sign (that may include the radiation symbol) stating: CAUTION X-RAYS Dental X-ray equipment and imaging software should be operated only by individuals adequately instructed in safe.

The aim of radiation protection in dentistry is to obtain the desired clinical information with minimum radiation exposure to patients, dental personnel, and the public.

During an average radiological examination, the radiation dose received by an individual is generally low and relatively few cells are damaged. A nearly similar response rate of health care workers (%) was described in the study of Furmaniak et al., () who assessed radiation awareness among dentists.

Radiation safety requirements documents and guidelines for diagnostic radiographers in SA are available on this website to equip radiographers to apply the ALARA principle. Radiographers must be cognisant of the legislation and the regulations underpinning the use of X-ray equipment as described in the Hazardous and Substances Act, as well as.

Role of Radiation Protection Superviser (RPS) Radiation Employers will need to appoint, in writing, a sufficient number of RPS’s within a clinical imaging / radiotherapy department to comply with Regulation 17 (4) of the IRR99 to exercise close supervision of radiation work on behalf of the Employer, to ensure adherence, among other areas, to the arrangements set out in the.

Radiation protection, also known as radiological protection, is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "The protection of people from harmful effects of exposure to ionizing radiation, and the means for achieving this".

Exposure can be from a source of radiation external to the human body or due to internal irradiation caused by the ingestion of radioactive. Use of ionising radiation in diagnostic radiography could lead to hazards such as somatic and genetic damages. Compliance to safe work and radiation protection practices could mitigate such risks.
