Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine a possible effect of ionizing and nonionizing radiations on peripheral blood flow in occupationally exposed persons by means of capillaroscopic analysis. Altogether 290 subjects were examined. Of these 100 were occupationally exposed to ionizing radiation, 110 were occupationally exposed to nonionizing radiation and 80 control subjects never worked with radiation sources. Statistical analysis showed that microvascular abnormalities occurred significantly more frequently among occupationally exposed persons than in the control group.
