Post examination

4. Radiation dose and practitioner recording

Radiation dose monitoring and completion of the radiographic examination is important.  Radiographer / RTs should confirm that the examination has been completed on the relevant hospital / radiology computer system.  In addition, the radiographer / RT should record exposure factors and dosimetric information together with the radiographer / RTs responsible for the examination.  This will facilitate the monitoring of radiation doses acquired outside of the radiology department and also facilitate audit.
