Message from IRPA President to IRPA associate societies

Dear Radiation Protection Professionals,
 
It is once again that time of year where for many families Christmas celebrations are going on, and soon we will start the challenging New Year 2014. IRPA and its members have had an interesting and active year behind us, where we all started in a new era of collaborative work between radiation protection practitioners worldwide. I can assure you that on many occasions the importance of our work was recognized.

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.
