In a room of electrophysiology from the cardiology service where procedures are made guided with X-Rays of ablation with radiofrequency and from implants ventricular defibrillation; there were registered monthly doses usually high in the same personal dosimeter flap of a nursing assistant who works there with values of equivalent personal doses, Hp (10), of superficial equivalent doses, Hp (0.07) of 128.1mSv. In view of the anxiety produced in the worker upon knowing the readings of its dosimeter, and since there is no disposition of precedents investigated in the facility, and it has been carried out a study for explaining if the doses registered could has been received by the worker if it is only received by the dosimeter.
