Abstract In interventional cardiology (IC) staff can be exposed to high dose levels due to the long fluoroscopy procedures performed. Staff dosimetry can yield information on the optimisation level of radiation protection, which is influenced by the equipment performance, auxiliary protection devices, training in radiation protection and procedure complexity. Staff exposure data assessed in haemodynamic laboratories of four hospitals in Spain, Greece and Italy participating in the DIMOND concerted action are analysed and compared with data in the literature.
