Background: Long-term exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation may adversely affect the human cells, especially the peripheral blood cell count. Changes in the hematological parameters of a radiation worker may serve as an indicator of the health effects of ionizing radiation. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of ionizing radiation on the hematological parameters of practicing medical radiographers in Southeast, Nigeria to help in the early diagnosis of radiation-related damage.
