About DDM2

The objectives of the Dose Datamed 2 project (DDM2) is to collect available data on the patient doses from the radiodiagnostic procedures (X-ray and nuclear medicine) in the European Union and to facilitate the further implementation of Radiation Protection 154. European Guidance on Estimating Population Doses from Medical X-ray Procedure, published by the European Commission in 2008.

To achieve the above objectives, the study aims at:

  • providing advice and collecting feedback from the application of the guidance RP 154;
  • providing estimates of population doses in EU Member States and the population dose in European Union as a whole;
  • providing a database for population dose information which will enable continuous collection and follow-up of European population doses.
