|Local paediatric DRLs for CT examinations in Athens. Where are we now?|
The study presents pediatric local DRLs for head, neck, IAC, chest and AP CT examinations according to age groups. Although the comparison of DRLs is a challenging task due to the lack of standardization of CT protocols, the proposed DRLs were generally lower than the European DRLs  for head, chest and AP examinations. Paediatric DRLs for neck and IAC examinations are not available in the literature mainly due to their frequency. However, further investigations across the country are required in order to establish national paediatric DRLs in Greece.
