Final Activity Report - SENTINEL (Safety and efficacy for new techniques and imaging using new equipment to support European legislation)

Project ID: 12909
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-RADPROT

Abstract

This is the final report of the SENTINEL project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This proposal dealt with radiation protection, safety, and related issues that arise from these developments. According to the report, this project has dealt with radiation protection, safety, and related issues that arise from the above developments in radiology. It covered over 90 % of patient examinations, 60 % of the collective dose from medical sources, and approximately 50 % of the collective dose from man-made sources. In practice this project dealt with almost all radiological digital imaging outside of CT scanning. The report covers a series of studies which were undertaken on the justification and optimisation of new and emerging imaging techniques. These studies commented on examinations or were associated with high individual doses, frequently performed, or apply to more sensitive groups.
