Aim: The aim of this study to assess the knowledge of radiographic students about radiation protection devices, their use and handling. Methods: A prospective, questionnaire-based study was carried out in Department of Radiological and Imaging Techniques. A validated questionnaire was circulated among undergraduate and postgraduate Radiographic students. Result: Out of 169 participants was 150(88.7%) of undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma students of radiological and imaging techniques filled questionnaire in this study. To assess knowledge about radiation protection devices, their use and handling, which they gain during theory classes and from hospital posting. There were 58(38.7%) were female and 92 (61.3%) were male. Conclusion: Study concluded that there should be proper theory classes for the conduction of knowledge about radiation protection devices, their use and handling in radiology department. Training session and teaching standards should be taken in account for not only the number of hours required to obtain the knowledge with the equipment required to run the classes in the simulation-based learning environment. This questionnaire-based survey demonstrates that up-to-date radiation protection devices, their use and handling skill in among radiography students of college of paramedical sciences were not sufficient, this should be improved by the well-designed training and theoretical sessions. From this study, we suggest that all members of the health care community should attend the webinars, guest lectures and training sessions about knowledge of radiation protection devices, their use and handling in radiology department.
