Information for industries that work with radiation and contribute dose information to the ANRDR.
This statement outlines the type of information that is disclosed to the Australian National Radiation Dose Register (ANRDR), why it is required, and how the information is used.
The types of information we collect and how that information is used.
The National Diagnostic Reference Level Service MDCT survey collects data for three age groups and eight imaging protocols. The three age groups are:
The Image Guided Interventional Procedure (IGIP) survey will determine diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for five (5) common interventional and diagnostic angiography fluoroscopic procedures: 'normal’ coronary angiogram, cerebral angiogram (1-3 vessels), cerebral angiogram (4+ vessels), abdominal angiogram, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
The OSL measures potential occupational doses from gamma radiation and X‑rays. They are typically used in industries such as diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy, chiropractic, veterinary, dental and nuclear medicine.
If you work in a workplace where you may be exposed to ionising radiation, you may need to be monitored.
If you have any questions or require any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact the ANRDR team.
