    This publication was first produced in 1992 by a working party established by The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) and the British Institute of Radiology (BIR).  Since then regulations, imaging techniques and working practices have changed.

    The publication has therefore been reviewed by representatives of BIR and is now republished by the BIR after consultation with both the RCR and the College of Radiographers (CoR).  Although the document concentrates on the risk from ionising radiation and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), hazards associated with ultrasound are also briefly discussed.
