Abstract
Objectives

To estimate radiologists’ level of knowledge of and their implication in radioprotection.

Methods

An anonymous and supervised survey was conducted during a work meeting.

Results

Of the 65 questionnaires handed out, 63 were returned. In general, the radiologists surveyed considered their level of knowledge to be low, and it was statistically demonstrated (p=0.018) that the level of knowledge they believed they had was related to the number of correct answers. The level of knowledge that radiologists believed they had was also related (p<0.05) with the years of experience, and it was higher in the more experienced radiologists.

Conclusions

There is an important margin of improvement in knowledge about radiation protection.

Resumen
Objetivos

Estimar el nivel de conocimientos de los radiólogos y su implicación en el uso de medidas de radioprotección.

Métodos

Se realizó una encuesta anónima y supervisada durante una reunión de trabajo.

Resultados

De los 65 cuestionarios facilitados, se devolvieron 63. En líneas generales, los radiólogos consideraron su nivel de conocimientos como bajo, y quedó estadísticamente demostrado (p=0,018) que el nivel de conocimientos que creían tener guardaba relación con el número de respuestas correctas. También guardaba relación (p<0,05) con los años de experiencia, y era más alto en aquellos más experimentados.

Conclusiones

Hay un importante margen de mejora en el nivel de conocimientos en materia de radioprotección.
