Background: Today using contrast media in order to diagnose different tissues in radiology section has found a vast range of applications. Thus application of safe procedures and protocols in usage of contrast media to prevent dangerous reactions seems to be of great necessity. That is why in this study we aimed to evaluate the safety of intravenous administration of contrast media in the radiology sections of medical-educational Centers of Urmia. Materials & Methods: This is a descriptive and cross sectional study. Data were gathered using questionnaires derived from articles and international standard guidelines such as (ESURE, RCR) in three areas including: drugs, protocols and facilities. Results: Results indicated that the level of compliance with safety protocols, facilities and drugs were 91.3% and 69.4% and 100% respectively. The average safety observance was 80.9% totally. The results showed that there were some deficiencies in some equipment such as pulse Oximeter and ECG. Moreover, it was found that a unique protocol is not used in all surveyed sections. Conclusion: Regarding the importance of this issue it is necessary to publish and implement a unique protocol for contrast media administrating and to provide all required equipment for improving patient safety process. Meanwhile a wide supervision should have been done by related authorities in or out of the organization.
