Update from the EUCLID project

Posted May 3, 2018

The 33-month project EUCLID (European Study on Clinical Diagnostic Reference Levels for X-ray Medical Imaging) funded by the European Commission aims at advancing the optimisation of radiation protection of patients in Europe. It will provide up-to-date clinical DRLs for the, from a radiation protection perspective, most important x-ray imaging tasks in Europe.

The project team is now pleased to present the Report and review on existing clinical DRLs, as well as the final list of clinical indications for which DRLs will be established. Both documents are available here.
