National DRLs for fluoroscopy and fluoroscopically guided interventions

Status: Published on

HIQA has published a report on national diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for fluoroscopy procedures and fluoroscopically guided interventions. DRLs represent typical radiation dose levels and these have been updated following a survey carried out by HIQA in Irish medical services in 2021. This report presents an overview of the findings from this survey. HIQA aims to share learnings to help undertakings and facilities optimise patient doses to further improve safety around ionising radiation in Ireland.
