Abstract Following a survey carried out in the Ile-de-France region of France, a multidisciplinary working group compiled a series of information sheets aimed at helping analyse risks in conventional and interventional radiological services. The information sheet described in this article specifically addresses external radiotherapy (particle accelerators). It includes a synthesis of useful information in this field, together with a list of relevant French legislation on radiation protection in the medical field.
