Radiation protection is an integral component of any radiology department. The main principles of radiation protection are to provide adequate protection from undue exposure of radiation to personnel directly or indirectly involved with radiation, without unduly limiting the benefits of radiation exposure. Regular ongoing educational programs and safety reviews are a necessary responsibility of healthcare institutions. Chronic irradiation of the hands is a primary safety concern for any physician involved in high-dose fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures. Radiation exposure to hands is often the most significant factor in overall radiation risk.
