Abstract: Ionizing radiation is used in medical examinations. It causes microscopic damage to living tissue. Radiation protection in medical radiography provides vital information on radiation protection. The general objectives of this study were to describe the measures taken for radiation protection in the x-ray rooms at the departments of radiography of selected private hospitals in the municipal area of Kandy and the specific objectives were to find out the details of room designing with relevance to radiation protection and to compare above with the standard guidelines. This was a descriptive study.Three departments of x-ray of the private hospitals of the Kandy municipal area were selected as the sample of the study.
