Purpose: To assess the dose reduction of radiologists by using angular beam modulation (ABM) and radiation protection drape during computed tomography (CT) fluoroscopy. Materials and Methods: The phantom was set on the lower that is 15 cm from the isocenter position. We measured the radiation exposure around the phantom with radiophotoluminescence glass dosimeters. The space radiation dose rate was measured with an ionization chamber dosimeter in the CT room. Results: The dose rate of finger radiation exposure was 67% at assumed assist tool position with ABM. And the dose rate of finger radiation exposure with the combination of ABM and radiation protection drape was 33%. The space dose rate of exposure with the combination of ABM and radiation protection drape was 49% at 150 cm. Conclusion: The combination of ABM and radiation protection drape can reduce finger radiation exposure at assumed assist tool position. The space dose rate of the standing position of radiologists can get a clear dose of radiation reduction by the combination of both.
