Occupational exposure to the radiation workers in departments of radiation oncology, nuclear medicine & diagnostic radiology has been measured on monthly basis, using film badges, over a period of 5 years. Average monthly dose equivalent received by various subgroups was as follows: Students 0.08 mSv, staff nurses 0.08 mSv, attendants 0.09 mSv, consultants 0.09 mSv and technicians 0.12 mSv. The mean monthly dose equivalent received by a worker in radiotherapy department was 0.08 mSv, in diagnostic radiology 0.1 mSv and in nuclear medicine department 0.13 mSv. No case of genuine excessive exposure has been recorded. None of the radiation workers received dose more than the maximum permissible dose.
