Conclusion

Preliminary results suggest there is good agreement between the respective local DRLs across both paediatric hospitals. Further follow-up audits are required at TSCUH for the different X-ray procedures in order to provide a more comprehensive cross site comparison of dose optimisation. Once clinical and medical physics staff are satisfied that adequate dose optimisation has been achieved, the exposure factors will be applied across all future paediatric sites. This will ensure a high standard of care and dose optimisation for paediatric patients in Ireland.
