Following nationally defined reference levels for applied radiation is mandatory. How does your radiology department prove its compliance?
As a healthcare professional you are obligated to keep exposure to ionizing radiation as low as is reasonably achievable (ALARA principle). How do you monitor this?
- assists you in complying with dose regulations,
- provides evidence and reporting at different aggregation levels and
- helps you to reduce the radiation dose in your imaging procedure.
