Updates to National Diagnostic Reference Levels website

Published: 28 November 2018 Ezine

The Public Health England (PHE) National Diagnostic Reference Levels (NDRLs) website page has undergone a major renewal to include their new and updated values.
Included in the new values, NDRLs are now presented for coronary CT angiography, CT in hybrid imaging (PET-CT, SPECT-CT) and CT in Radiotherapy.

Additionally, NDRLs have been updated for cervical spine CT and screening mammography. This is also the first-time screening mammography values appear directly on this page.

These newly included values represent substantial amounts of work from many people, working together across a number of disciplines and professions.

DRL values should be considered by employers when setting their local DRLs as required by the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017.
