Background: X-ray is a type of radiation that their harmful effects on human health have been confirmed. The use of radiation in hospitals and medical centers for diagnostic, therapeutic, and research tasks is inevitable and is developing. So, it is essential to measure, evaluate, and control the amount of dose received by radiologists. Methods: In the first phase of this study, using the checklist to study the results of badge film and how to use individual protective equipment in hospitals surveyed in this investigation and in the second phase, using the Radiometer (05-MKS) TERRA model of the x-ray in different departments of the study hospitals was measured. Results: The maximum dose measured in different departments of hospitals studied by 19 micro Sievert/hour was reported, and in none of the hospitals, the dose has been exceeded. Also, after reviewing the reports of the badge film, it was found that there were no suspicious cases that indicate an excessive receiving dose. The use of protective equipment was as in a way that 52.6 % said they were always using protective equipment, and 43.4 % said they sometimes use it. 3.9 % said they did not use X-ray protection equipment. Conclusion: Considering that the dose measured in all hospitals of the study is less than the recommended limit proposed by the International Commission for Environmental Protection and the Technical Committee of Iranchr('39')s Professional Health. So, it is concluded that the radiation protection program is well executed.
