Responsibility for the protection of patients undergoing medical exposure to ionising radiation has been devolved to the home countries. All notifications of incidents where patients have been exposed to ionising radiation to a degree ‘ much greater than intended ’ (IR(ME)R,) should be sent to the relevant IR(ME)R Inspectorates. Malpractice lawsuits in radiology are commonly related to inappropriate medical care or to the poor physician-patient relationship. In the present paper, we provide overview of the basic principles of the medical malpractice law and the main legal issues and causes of legal actions against diagnostic and interventional radiologists.

For example, codes are listed in the Diagnostic Radiology (Diagnostic Imaging) subsection under the Head and Neck anatomic heading Although not specifically stated in the descriptor nomenclature, this series of codes () represents radiological examinations using conventional X-ray imaging.
The whole-body dose limit is assumed to be at the deep-dose equivalent (a tissue depth of 1 cm). The lens dose equivalent is the dose equivalent to the lens of the eye from an external source of ionizing radiation at a tissue depth of cm.
The shallow-dose equivalent is the external dose to the skin of the whole-body or extremities from an external source of ionizing radiation at a tissue. 1 Dental Radiation Protection Program Guide Each registrant is required to develop, document, and implement a Radiation Protection Program.
This is a guide to assist in constructing a Radiation Protection Program specific for each dental facility. A registrant may not use this document as a substitute for their Radiation Protection Program.

Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine York: IPEM pp, ISBN: This book is the much awaited replacement for the old yellow `Guidance Notes' published in by the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB). Since then nearly all Regulations covering the use of ionising radiation have been updated.
The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM. The aim of this book, co-written by a pediatric radiologist, a physician and physicist, and a medical radiation technologist, is to address this issue by providing, for the first time, a thorough overview of clinical radiation field settings and their implications for radiation protection.
An accompanying volume is devoted to fluoroscopy. protection to the life, health, and safety of all individuals subject to exposure to radiation.

Radiation dose measurement in diagnostic radiology is considered to be a critical factor for optimizing radiation protection to the health care practitioners, the patient and the public. This has lead to equipment that has dose-area product meters permanently installed. The establishment of quality assurance and audit programmes and inspections by the competent authorities are necessary to ensure that medical exposure is delivered under good radiation protection.
The deadline is 6 February ; by then every member state should have defined how to perform clinical audits in radiology. 1. RADIATION SAFETY AND PROTECTION FOR DENTAL RADIOGRAPHY PREPARED BY DR.
