Abstract: Objectives: The aims of the study were to compare level of vitamin D deficiency between radiologists and a control group of non-radiologists. A dark, daylight-deprived work environment may increase the risk for radiologists having vitamin D deficiency. Materials and Methods: A comparative study containing a total of 66 participants divided into two groups (radiologist group ) and (non radiologist group ).This study was done in Jeddah and Yanbu industrial city. Result: The study revealed that the distribution of the Non-Radiologist according to vitamin D level signified as Normal level, Deficiency, severe Deficiency; 91.7%,41.3% and 37.5%respectively. the distribution of Radiologist according to vitamin D level signified as Normal level, Deficiency, severe Deficiency; 8.3%,58.7% and 62.5%respectively. A comparison between females and males radiologists on their vitamin D levels, Females radiologists were 21 participants , while the males radiologists were only 12 participants. It reveals 5 participants of Females suffer from severe vitamin D deficiency( < 10 Ng/ml) by a percentage of 15.1% , while in males were 0%. and 15 of females had vitamin D deficiency ( 10-29 Ng/ml) by a percentage of 45.4% , while in males vitamin D deficiency were 36.4%, and 3.0% of females were normal (30-100 Ng/ml) , while it was 0% in males. Increasing of age increases the risk of vitamin D deficiency , radiologists who are age between (18-29) only 3.0% of them had severe vitamin D deficiency ( < 10 Ng/ml) ,while radiologists age between ( 30-49) 12.1% of them had severe vitamin D deficiency . Radiologists who works 12 hours a day has high severe vitamin D deficiency(
