OBJECTIVE. The risk of injury associated with long-term occupational exposure to ionizing radiation is low for radiologists. The purpose of this article is to systematically review and inform radiologists about radiation-related effects to which they are potentially susceptible. CONCLUSION. Formal education and training on radiation safety and management, careful attention to good radiation protection habits, and continued emphasis on radiation management and the as low as reasonably achievable principle are recommended for all radiologists.
