Abstract

Abstract- Radiation workers in the departments of radiology, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy are always exposed to ionizing radiations. Complete blood count (CBC) test is commonly used to monitor the health of radiation workers. The aim of this study was to evaluate hematological parameters of radiation workers of Isfahan city in Iran, and reveal the effectiveness of the CBC tests in the prediction of the radiation effects on the health of radiation workers. The data reported in CBC tests of 160 radiation workers and 103 healthy people were collected. The differences between blood parameters of radiation workers and controls were investigated. The amount of hematocrit in the male radiation workers was 45.98 ± 3.00, which was significantly higher than control group (44.33 ± 2.41%) (p
