Workshop NRD Portugal
National dose reference levels (DRLs) in radiodiagnostic medicine, interventional radiology and nuclear medicine are essencial in improving medical practice, in lowering the exposure of the population to ionising radiation, and are a legal requisite in most countries, including Portugal. The NRD project, which involves several institutions, including C2TN, ESTES-C, the Direcção Geral de Saúde, and the Portuguese Society of Physics aims to set the national DRLs for Portugal for the first time, by conduction nationwide surveys following internationally recognised standards. The obtained DRLs reflect nationwide practices, equipment technology and promote their optimization.
Next 7th December, it will be held at Escola Superior de Tecnologia da Saúde de Coimbra the Workshop NRD Portugal devoted to National dose reference levels.
