Assessment of effective dose (E) for workers performing interventional radiology is particularly problematic due to the conditions of partial body exposure, so very few estimates of E are found in the literature. Two simple algorithms (the Rosenstein-Webster and the Niklason algorithms) are available that combine the readings of two dosemeters, one worn under the protective apron and one on the neck outside the apron, to estimate E for the range of imaging conditions typical of medical fluoroscopy. The algorithms are reviewed and their suitability for estimating E for personnel performing interventional radiology is analysed by comparison with the most recent experimental data. It can be concluded that the Niklason algorithm's estimates are in better agreement with the experimental assessments of E.
