The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of scattered radiation reduction to medical staff by attaching the leaded sheet on the collimator cover of the angiography equipment. Ambient dose equivalent was measured to compare the rate of scattered radiation reduction between with and without the leaded sheet. Shielding effect was confirmed for scattered radiation in all directions, especially 27% of shielding ratio in the head and neck area when angiography equipment installed with small detector, and more than 40% of shielding ratio when adjusting a cut portion of leaded sheet to the field size. However, it decreased when the dose area product meter was not attached. Therefore, our proposed leaded sheet can reduce radiation dose to medical staff during angiographic and interventional procedures.
