Abstract

A systematic review was conducted to provide an overview of the health effects of occupational radiation exposure from interventional fluoroscopy procedures on medical radiation workers. Among the 34 studies that met the inclusion criteria, most studies were cross-sectional (76%) and published after 2011 (65%) in a handful of countries. Although diverse outcomes were reported, most studies focused on cataracts. Radiation health effects were rarely assessed by risk per unit dose. Interventional radiation medical workers represent a small subset of the population studied worldwide. Further epidemiologic studies should be conducted to evaluate health outcomes among interventional radiation medical workers.
