Abstract

The effective dose of medical staff members, especially interventional radiologists and cardiologists, is classified as a relatively high level. We measured the dose for interventional cardiologists by using optically stimulated luminescence dosimeters (OSLDs). However, this quantity is not the same as Hp (3). In experiments, the dose at the eye-lens position of a phantom were measured using OSLDs and thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLDs). A conversion factor from dose measured by using TLDs to OSLDs was estimated from these results. In addition, the eye doses of interventional cardiologists in clinical situations were measured, and the effect of eyewear on the eye-lens dose was discussed.
