Background and Purpose: In some patients, invasive radiology procedures by using anesthetics and contrast may lead to certain reaction. Therefore, consent must be obtained from patients. At the moment, some radiology centers obtain the consent from the patient in some of invasive radiology procedures in Iran. Due to the importance of consent and its position in patients' ethics, and because of lack of national order, and by considering the effect of individual attitude on the execution of each process therefore, in this study, the attitude of radiologists as supervisors of the executive policies of a radiology center has been investigated. Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was done in Mazandran province in Iran. The study population consists of all radiologists (66 radiologists) from 83 radiology centers. A questionnaire with alpha 0.8 designed at 5 axes and self-administration was used. The data were analyzed by descriptive analysis indices and using SPSS software. Results: from 83 radiology centers with 66 radiologists, only 51(77%) filled in the study questionnaire. The number of images taken per day was 45 on average and the invasive images were 2±2.The participants under study had positive attitudes towards obtaining consent form. Conclusion: Considering the positive attitudes of participants under study, it seems that the radiologists would agree to get consent form of the patients undergoing the invasive procedure of imaging.
