TARASIUK, Laritza  and  PEREZ DIAZ, Marlén. Evaluación de la protección radiológica en un módulo de medicina nuclear de un hospital cubano. Rev Cubana Hig Epidemiol [online]. 1999, vol.37, n.3, pp.127-131. ISSN 1561-3003.

A survey on radiological protection was applied as a starting point to improve it in a department of nuclear medicine of a Cuban hospital. 10 topics referring to the aspects connected with the patient's protection, the worker exposed to ionizing radiations and the public were included in the survey. 203 answers were given by the medical personnel, the exposed workers from the department, the person responsible for radiological protection and the patients. The set of answers did not respond to a distribution law. That's why a mon-parametric method (method of Van Der Varden) was chosen for processing the selected sample within the population of answers. No significant differences were observed between the affirmative and the negative answers. The need to implement a Program for the Improvement of Radiological Protection in this department of nuclear medicine is deduced.
