Radiation protection of the patient, one of the European Community's tasks
This paper describes the efforts at Community level to avoid unnecessary patient exposure during radiological diagnostic examinations. Highlights of research achievements are presented. Special attention is given to the various measures taken by the Radiation Protection Programme of the CEC as a contribution to "good radiological practices" which means in this context the production of comparable, basic clinical radiographs with appropriate image quality and at reasonably low doses to the patient. Contributions from different disciplines such as medicine, physics, mathematics, radiation protection, engineering, etc, are analysed from the standpoint of the Community intention to create a Europe for Research Workers and, it is to be hoped, the "Euro-X-Ray".
