Abstract

TBackgroung: The amount of radiation absorbed in measured is called radiation dose. It is mandatory to monitor radiation dose of the radiation worker which should be less than the internationally allowed values. A cancer center has three radiation departments which are called diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy. The workers in these departments are classified as radiation workers. Methodolgy: The medical workers were monitored to determine their average annual effective dose using film badges for four years. The sub-division of radiation workers in cancer center is medical staff/supervisors, technicians and nurses. Results: Results were compared with national and international published data. The results of the measured annual dose were well below the international recommended dose limit of 20 mSv. Conclusion: The results suggest that the radiation safety standards are being practiced at BINOR, Cancer hospital, Bannu, KPK, Pakistan.
