Multiple imaging examinations and cumulative effective dose (CED) are an increasingly topical issue. In their editorial titled “Looking critically at the paradigm of radiation exposure from multiple imaging examinations” that has just been published in European Radiology, ISRQSA Co-Chairs D.

Radiologists should continue advancing their responsibility for dose estimates, e.g., through Dose Management Systems (DMS), and including educational efforts on CED metrics.
