Radiation doses to staff involved in intracoronary technique from a solution of 188Re and 186Re (60:40) in water of unit density following P.T.C.A. have been theoretically determined. The method employees EGS-4 Code system based on Monte Carlo technique of random sampling. Two dimensional dose distributions in tissue in a tabular form around a typical cylindrical syringe used to impart desired dose to an effected lesion is presented. No comparison is possible for want of similar data in literature. The maximum inaccuracy in this calculation is unlikely to exceed + 2%.
