Abstract Following a survey on radiation protection conducted in the Ile-de-France region, a pluridisciplinary working group comprising several institutions and various experts published a series of information sheets aimed at helping analyse the hazards of conventional and interventional radiology. These sheets summarize information on radiation protection by type of activity and cover the following aspects: relevant legislation; fixed equipment in medical settings; mobile equipment in medical settings; scanography in medical settings; interventional radiology in medical settings (for short and long-tem treatment).
