Safety awareness among medical staff who are exposed to scattered radiation represents another important aspect affecting radiation safety. As empirical studies indicate a causal relationship between x-ray dose exposure in interventional radiology and an increased risk of severe diseases such as brain tumours4 and cataracts5, wearing the legally-required badge might not be enough. In order to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure, it is recommended that

medical staff should be able to monitor their exposure to scattered radiation during interventional procedures in real-time. In this regard, ICRP6 recommends a second dosimeter worn outside the lead apron to better monitor personal dose exposure.

The real-time dose monitoring system RaySafe i2 enables medical staff to monitor their exposure to scattered radiation during interventional procedures in real-time. Studies indicate that the use of this real-time monitoring system raises awareness and compliance among medical staff and encourages an increased use of radiation protection utilities9. Overall, a dose reduction for medical staff of up to 45% has been observed.
