ICRP Publication 129
Radiological Protection in Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

Edited by:

July 2015 | SAGE Publications Ltd
This publication aims to provide guidance on radiological protection in the new technology of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). CBCT is now used widely by specialists who have little or no training in radiological protection. This publication provides recommendations on radiation dose management directed at different stakeholders, and covers principles of radiological protection, training, and quality assurance aspects. As with previous ICRP publications, the Commission hopes that imaging professionals, medical physicists, and manufacturers will use the guidelines and recommendations provided in this publication for implementation of the Commission’s principle of optimisation of protection of patients and medical workers, with the objective of keeping exposures as low as reasonably achievable, taking into account economic and societal factors, and consistent with achieving the necessary medical outcomes.
