In Bangladesh most of the X-ray machines are conventional type at district level but technologically developed X-ray machines are increasing day by day. Radiation protection and safety issues are also becoming a great concern in the field of medical sector due to increasing X-ray facility. In the present study, X-ray installations at Habiganj district in Bangladesh are chosen to analysis the radiation protection infrastructure of 30 diagnostic X-ray facilities. The main objective of this study is to verify the compliance of all regulatory requirements through the analysis of the data regarding radiation protection matters. It has been observed that in 83% facilities, radiation doses are within regulatory limit but most of the X-ray room sizes are below the required value (225ft2), it is matters of concern from regulatory point of view.60% of all X-ray facilities have been found satisfactory performance from radiological safety point of view. Most of the facilities the personal protective equipment is found in satisfactory condition but the thermoluminescence dosimeter (TLD) in the facilities are found below satisfactory level. To strengthen radiation protection infrastructure of all X-ray facilities and to ensure effective regulatory control over the facilities the current study can contribute in near future of Bangladesh.
