Ethics, Radiation Protection Culture, Islamic Personality, Muslim Radiographers


Established guidelines in radiation protection practice still could not guarantee compliance from radiographers' part. Since non-compliance is unethical, radiographers should be better versed in biomedical ethics principles. The objective of this paper is to review the integration of ethics into radiation protection practice through an integrated Islamic personality approach. The review involves literature related to the topic studied. Content analysis of reading materials is performed. Results found that integrating ethics in the radiation protection framework could be accomplished by combining the essence of culture and belief. Personalizing Islamic Personality in radiation protection practice could help uphold ethics in practice.
