The Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) will be reviewed to highlight the various roles and responsibilities of duty holders.
– Summarise the roles of IRMER duty holders
– Explain the technology used in the generation CBCT images
– Explain the factors that influence image diagnostic quality
The present the theory of ionizing radiation and its application to the production of three-dimensional images. Actual clinic images will be used to demonstrated the relationship between sensor features and dosage.
