The aim of the study was to estimate occupational radiation dose to the eye lens of radiologists and the dose reduction ratio of lead glasses during interventional radiology. Three interventional radiologists monitored Hp(3) using small-type optically stimulated luminescence dosemeters attached to the left inside and outside of the lead glasses with 0.07-mmPb [Hp(3)eye]. Hp(10) and Hp(0.07) were monitored, respectively, by attaching the personal dosemeter to the lead neck collar above the lead apron. The median Hp(3)eye with lead glasses and the median dose reduction ratio of lead glasses for the three radiologists were 8.02 mSv/y and 57.7%, respectively. The median Hp(3)eye without lead glasses [Hp(3)eye-w/o] for the three radiologists was 18.6 mSv/y, but Hp(3)eye-w/o for one of the radiologists was 24.1 mSv/y. Monitoring occupational radiation dose to the eye lens is important because interventional radiologists are at risk of exceeding the new dose limit.

Name: Radiation protection dosimetry
The reduction in the occupational dose limit of the eye lens has created the need for optimizing eye protection and dose assessment, in particular for interventional clinicians. Lead glasses are one o...
This study measured the radiation exposure of the eye lens of medical personnel performing fluoroscopy and interventional procedures at the Sarawak General Hospital in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. This...
The new lower eye lens dose limit is of relevance in interventional radiology, where higher dose procedures result in increased scattered radiation to staff. The eye lens dose may be monitored using t...
To report the success rate of scleral lens wear and the lens handling learning curve from the wearers perspective.
Interventional radiology (IR) procedures tend to be complex, which delivers high radiation exposure to patient. In the present study, we measured the radiation exposure dose [Hp(3)] in the eye using a...
The main hypothesis is the opacification of the lens would be increase by the IVT. The opacification of the lens can be objectived by : - the objective scatter index (OSI) on the OQAS...
Contact lens induced dry eyes leads to lens intolerance and discontinuation. Incidence of dry eye in contact lens wearer is significantly higher in Asian population compared to other ethni...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the factors affecting comfortable contact lens wear and how those factors affect contact lens replacement frequency.
To evaluate and compare the performance of a new contact lens to a marketed contact lens.
The purpose of this study is to assess the lens and lens case microbial colonization associated with marketed care solutions used by experienced soft lens wearers.
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
The portion of the crystalline lens surrounding the nucleus and bound anteriorly by the epithelium and posteriorly by the capsule. It contains lens fibers and amorphous, intercellular substance.
Incomplete rupture of the zonule with the displaced lens remaining behind the pupil. In dislocation, or complete rupture, the lens is displaced forward into the anterior chamber or backward into the vitreous body. When congenital, this condition is known as ECTOPIA LENTIS.
A type of crystallin that has been found in the lens (LENS, CRYSTALLINE) of certain species of VERTEBRATES. They are inactivated form of PHOSPHOPYRUVATE HYDRATASE.
A type of crystallin that has been found in the lens (LENS, CRYSTALLINE) of certain species of MOLLUSCA such as SQUID and OCTOPUS. It is an inactivated form of aldehyde dehydrogenase.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
