Diagnostic Reference Levels: Reducing Radiation Exposure Safe During X-Rays and CT Scans

Diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) are just one of the ways radiologists protect patients from excessive exposure to radiation during X-rays and CT scans, but most patients can go through a lifetime of imaging procedures without ever hearing of a DRL. If you’re worried about the ionizing radiation associated with some types of diagnostic imaging, though, […]
