Dose DataMed II

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).

This is the homepage of the Dose DataMed II project, the follow up project lauched in 2011.

2011.10.27: Finalisation of data collection

We are now in the period in the project where countries that have performed recent national surveys for the whole field of radiology should have submitted data of frequencies and doses by means of the downloadable Excel sheets provided on the website. Thank you for all information so far! We still, however, are expecting complete national data from more countries, and appeal all to go through the questionnaires.

Based on the information we have received, some (minor) corrections have been detected in the Excel sheets. A new improved version is therefore available.

All countries that have submitted data using the first template will be contacted by the consortium in order to complete and correct possible errors. We will do this by mail or phone within the next two months.

Those of you who have not started yet, please use the new template provided. You are all advised to use the website for questions and advise.

Best regards in behalf of the Dose Datamed II team,

Hilde Olerud and Jenia Vassileva
