Increased Risk of Eye Damage from Operation of Interventional Fluoroscopy Equipment

The following information has been provided by ARPANSA:
 
The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has examined recent epidemiological evidence relating to tissue reaction effects for doses to the lens of the eye. Regarding occupational exposure in planned exposure situations, the Commission now recommends an equivalent dose limit for the lens of the eye of 20 mSv in a year averaged over defined periods of 5 years, with no single year exceeding 50 mSv.
