New ARPANSA fact sheet on improving eye safety in Image Guided Interventional Procedures (IGIP)
Posted 4th October 2013

ARPANSA has released a new fact sheet on improving eye safety in Image Guided Interventional Procedures (IGIP).

Previously the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), in its publication 60 (1991) recommended annual limits for the lens of the eye at 150 mSv. However recent epidemiological evidence relating to tissue reaction effects for doses to the lens of the eye and possible cataract formation has seen the ICRP now recommend an equivalent annual dose limit for the lens of the eye of 20 mSv, averaged over defined periods of 5 years, with no single year exceeding 50 mSv.
