At the end of 2004 DG TREN launched a project to provide information and develop guidance on the implementation of Article 12 of the Medical Exposure Directive in Member States with regard to medical imaging. This “DOSE DATAMED” study (in the following referred as DOSE DATAMED1 or DDM1) covered ten European countries with national experiences in conducting surveys of dose distributions from medical radiodiagnostic procedures. The guidance developed under the DOSE DATAMED1 project, together with best available survey data from these ten counties around the year 2002, is published by the European Commission as Radiation Protection 154. European Guidance on Estimating Population Dose from Medical X-ray Procedures1 (RP154).
