The directive places responsibility to ensure imaging systems have a method for the automatic control of the dose rate, on member states. Imaging equipment must also have a device that informs the operator and those carrying out the exam the quantity of radiation produced by the equipment during the procedure.

 

CTs and equipment used for interventional procedures must have a feature for providing relevant parameters for assessing patient dose and must have the ability to transfer dose information to the reporting system (i.e. PACS) for inclusion in the patient record.
