DRLs update in Computed Tomography and Radiography

The Radiation Protection Division of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) updated the diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in Computed Tomography for adults and children as well as in Radiography for children. Earlier this year, FOPH published new DRLs in Computed Tomography in hybrid imaging.

The revised notes R-06-04 on the DRLs in Radiography, R-06-06 on the DRLs in Computed Tomography and L-08-01 on the DRLs in nuclear medicine are available in the three national languages on the FOPH website (de, fr, it).

In addition, a communication is scheduled in the August issue of the newsletter of the Consumer Protection Directorate.
