Abstract: The current study intends to measure patient dose and estimate the radiation dose received for patient in (IC) procedures. The study was measured radiation doses to (212) patients during interventional cardiology procedures 161to coronary angiography (CA) and 51 to percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) was carried out in this study patient doses were calculated from patient body characteristics and exposure parameters using dose area product (DAP) meters. The mean age of patients 57.42 11.65 was ranging (21to 86) years. The mean value of tube parameter was 86.17 8.32KVp, ranges (to 63 from 105) Kvp, 5.59 0.844mAs range (to 3.2 from 10.2) mAs. The mean duration time of fluoroscopy was 6.87 7.06 mentis and the number of films per procedure was 9.17 4.53 films, range was (3 to33) films. All the investigations were performed in same center and department. The DAP measured in this study was lower than the previous reported studies in the literature. Because they can be attributed to the use of high voltage, long distance between patient and ionizing radiation source in all examinations
