Despite the use of ionizing radiation and most of the harmful effects commonly known but not shown, insufficient attention has been observed for radiation protection. Radiation-exposed patients, physicians, health care team and staff should receive training in this field. The aim of this study is the doses of radiation in the operating room to identify and inform health personnel in radiation protection. Radiation exposure to operating room staff (doctor, nurse, medical staff, X-ray technician, anaesthesia technician, etc.) has been recognized as a necessary hazard in operating room. The purpose of our work is to determine operating room staff radiation doses for operating room to identify procedures associated with higher radiation doses, and to determine the effects of various parameters on staff doses. This study was performed at Suleyman Demirel University Medical Faculty Hospital. The procedure of study was performed in department of anaesthesia. We recorded that radiation doses data include all related imaging performed as part of department procedure. The distances were 100, 150, 250 cm from X-ray tube. It is important to understand that radiation affects medical staff in operating procedures. Use of low doses of ionizing radiation does not have knowledge of the long-term results but we need to be careful to conclude that use of radiological protection. During radiation protection, the maximum dose, even under the thick, the minimum degree of exposure to radiation is an important factor for our health. In addition, in the study, Philips BV-25 Gold is used as a brand fluoroscopic device. Device, 1.2-2 kV, 60-100 mA/s of doses between the values.
